Exotic aromas of fig pudding, prune and cocoa bean aren't just soft and sweet; there's edge and angle to this wine, with plenty of acidity at the core along with coffee and chocolate. If there's a fault here, it's that the acidity sweeps away the fruity sweetness, leaving some hollowness on the finish.
