Dark in color, while one sniff indicates ripeness at the edge of stewy. There's unctuous berry jam and raisin to the bouquet, likely a result of late picking. Chunky on the palate, with plum and blackberry. Grabby yet soft, with wide-spread tannins. Finishes with coconut, vanilla and prune. Imported by De Maison Selections, Inc.
