Rich, musky fruit in the nose gives off a petrol aroma. Very ripe, so the edges are soft, with flavors of banana set against lemon, pineapple and orange marmalade. Bracing acidity keeps it from being flabby, but it's still heavy -possibly even overripe. The finish is very long, but it's also kind of fat.
