Pretty deep and sweet-smelling, with aromas of marzipan and dense fruit that hint at raisin but don't fully go there. The mouthfeel is sensuous and smooth, yet lively enough to push the cassis, raspberry and plum flavors in the right direction. Tobacco, herb and dry fruit flavors work the finish, and overall this is one balanced, pleasing wine. Drink now through 2011.
