This monster is intensely mineral, with aromas of crushed stones mixed with leather, lavender, pepper and cherry. In the mouth, it's heady with maple, leather, asphalt and cola. Comes at you in layers, the last of which is a finishing flow of espresso. Aged 20 months in new 500-liter barrels, not barriques. Imported by Europvin/Michael Skurnick Wines.
Multiple U.S. importers
