Ripe, slightly raisiny aromas stop short of cooked. That said, there's a sense of overripeness to the palate. If that theme is getting boring, then sorry, because this tastes of desiccated black grapes and prune. Cobos is good enough to make excellent wine in less than optimal years; this is a prime example of that.
