Prune, chocolate and tree bark can be detected on the nose. The mouth is thick and chewy, with low acidity not providing the balance to offset that richness. The finish is heavy and dark, and oddly some green flavors come through. This wine has good attributes but it's also searching for balance. —M.S.
