Rocland Chocolate Box Mataro 2012

Opens with the dense, dark cherry familiar to the variety, backed up with a blueberry before a savoury edge of leather and earth forms.

The palate is a little thin, entry shows a touch of licorice - beyond that it's a little raisined with little substance to back it up. Little length to speak of. Showed better with food. 86

Tasted on: Saturday 8th February, a Root Day 
Source: Sample
Price: $22
Alcohol: 14.5%
