If the wine smells or tastes like raisins, it's referred to as raisined (go figure). A raisined quality results from very ripe—even overripe—grapes. The culprit is usually the sweltering climate of the growing area, which dries out the grapes while they're still on the vine. Australian wines, for example, can sometimes take on raisined characteristics. It's generally considered a fault in dry table wines, but an inherent quality in sweet wines such as the liqueurs Muscat and Tokay.
