Boekenhoutskloof 2010 Chocolate Block
Paarl, South Africa

One of South Africa's best-selling wines, it is a surprising blend of Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Viognier. Syrah dominates the flavor with raspberry, blackberry and almond notes with just a hint of pepper and spice. The wine will work with most poultry and red meat but it will also go well with, as the name implies, rich, dark chocolate.

Rating: 14/20
Price: $30
