Meruge 2011 – Douro, Portugal

Cherries, burnt sugar, and florals on the nose.  Concentrated dark fruit and leather, with mineral and briny notes on the palate.  Very well balanced, with just the right tannins on the backend and a somewhat dusty finish, like musty old leaves.  A gorgeous wine.  I hauled this one back from Lisbon in my baggage a couple of years back and do not recall what I paid for it.
