What a monster this is. Aromas of roasted meat, compost, leather, berry and plum give it a rugged bouquet, while the superripe palate is big as sin and loaded with ultrasweet blackberry, soy and peppery flavors. Succulent, chocolaty and dark, it's like an earthquake in your mouth. Expensive for what you get, and recommended solely for fans of huge, modern wines. Imported by Kobrand.
