Rocland Estate Chocolate Box GSM 2012

Possesses the lovely, plush, comforting nose of the lead player Grenache. Damp earth, cherry with hints of choc-raspberry. Background savoury components add extra weight, a touch of herb and spice completes the picture.

Thick, chewy and spicy, Soft and rounded - plush. Oak clearly present, not overbearing. The wine holds its form well; tannin is fine and grainy, spice a common thread throughout. Drinks well: good length, spice driven. 89
