Superripe aromas of black fruits mocha flint and hot stones with a faint herbal nuance; slightly porty. Then fat full and soft in a distinctly creamy style with flavors of dark fruits melted dark chocolate maple syrup and cough medicine. This reminded me of a St. Estephe wine from a very ripe year. Finishes rich chewy and powerful with slightly dry-edged but supple tannins and notes of mocha and crushed rock.
