BOEKENHOUTSKLOOF 2012 THE CHOCOLATE BLOCK

A blend of Syrah (55%), Grenache Noir (20%), Cabernet Sauvignon (16%), Cinsault (5%) and Viognier, respectively. This has a distinctive spicy lift to its core of red fruits aromatically. Think of white pepper, a hint of gaminess and raspberry, red currant and dark cherry juice as well as a lifting white stone fruit component on the nose. Medium fuller bodied, this is not a heavy wine in the palate, yet it is richly flavored as well as showing good fruit concentration and exceptional fruit intensity. Seamless with finely tuned tannins this offers up a beautiful sleek, suave texture packed with a core of assorted red fruit compote flavors. Lingering and persistent this is quite polished showcasing excellent balance and delicious fruit with refined tannins. Drinking beautifully out of the gate this should drink impressively over the next 3-4 years.
