Boekenhoutskloof 2004 Chocolate Block Red (Franschhoek)
The name is enticing enough--and in the glass, this red blend from innovator Marc Kent delivers with style and grace. Spice and, appropriately, chocolate waft on the nose, and on the palate, the wine is rich, structured and full of red berry, cocoa and pepper flavors. Syrah, Grenache Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier and Cinsault offer ripeness and a juicy character. Susan Kostrzewa
