Spice Route 2012 Chakalaka Red (Swartland)

Chakalaka is always a bold and powerful selection, and the 2012 follows suit, with dense notes of black berry, plum and cherry that are framed by hints of lavender, licorice, laurel and celery seed. The medium-bodied palate offers spicy notes of pepper and bittersweet cocoa, with a lingering espresso tinge on the finish. A blend of 29% Syrah, 29% Mourvèdre, 13% Grenache, 13% Carignan, 8% Tannat and 8% Petite Sirah. Lauren Buzzeo
