Raisin and molasses aromas and flavors are a big part of this full-bodied, syrupy number from Cafayate in Salta. Additional scents of licorice, herbs and reedy berry only add to an overbearing sense of ripeness. In the mouth, this is heavy, with weighty tannins. Flavors of prune and P.X. Sherry precede coffee, chocolate and fig flavors on the finish.
