BOEKENHOUTSKLOOF 2012 THE CHOCOLATE BLOCK

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS-The 2012 Chocolate Block Franschhoek has slightly more Syrah and less Grenache than previous vintages. The blend of 70% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Grenache, 6% Cinsault and 1% Viognier is raised in 13% new wood, 87% in used barriques, hogsheads and 2,500-liter foudres. It has a rounded, quite sensual bouquet with pure, almost understated raspberry preserve, crushed strawberry and delicate touches of seaweed and fennel emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, quite feminine with fine tannins. This is very well-balanced and focused with superb freshness and vivacity toward the elegant finish.
