Default Fruit salad, anyone?

My favourite wine store employs a guy who boasts a really sensitive
palate. However, his descriptions of new offerings go over the top. This
is one of his more restrained descriptions:

"The nose of this wine is very fruit forward, with blueberry, red cherry
and plum. There's a lot more going on here, with a whole host of other
aromas including cream, dried leaf, shoe polish and pipe tobacco. On the
palate, the fruit takes centre stage, with lots of raspberry, black
cherry, blueberry and cranberry, and the subtle dry leaf/dustiness adds
a savoury edge to compliment the wine's fruit profile. This wine is
fairly ripe, and has a full, well-rounded mouthfeel, as you would expect
from a --------. However, there's more than a little bright acidity here
to keep this wine feeling noticeably fresher than many --------."

Can anyone identify the wine, district or even the country?
