Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block Red Blend (2020)
The nose is dark, intense, and brooding with aromas of black cherries, cardamom, sweet tobacco, espresso, and subtle whiffs of perfume. The nose’s dark fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally complex, juicy palate with gentle nuances of ripe plums, violets, black olives, cloves, and licorice. The mid-palate is focused, supple, and elegant with excellent, cocoa powdery tannins. The wine is medium- bodied, balanced with an earthy, layered character, covering the entire spectrum of berry fruit – from tart red plums to rich blue and blackberries. The finish is svelte, clean and dry, peppery and lingering, with hints of dried cranberry, tar, graphite, and smoke. Blend: 73% Syrah, 11% Grenache, 8% Cinsault, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Viognier
A stylish red that’s fresh and focused, showing expressive aromas and flavors of blackberry, dried lavender, espresso and iron in a well-knit, medium- to full-bodied frame. The long, creamy finish is loaded with spice box and sweet smoke accents.
