Chocolate Block Red 12
The nose is intense with aromas of black cherries, cardamom, sweet tobacco,
espresso and subtle whiffs of perfume. The dark fruit character of the nose follows through onto a juicy palate with ripe plums, violets, black olives, cloves,and liquorice. The mid-palate is focused, lithe and elegant with very fine, cocoa powdery tannins.
The wine is medium bodied and very balanced.The finish is svelte, cleanand dry, peppery and lingering, with hints of dried cranberry, tar, graphite and smoke.
