This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

A Chocolate Block

Lunch at Froggie's.

2006 Domaine A Pinot Noir - nose of grilled meats, mint and kinda alcoholic.  Sweet on the palate, and worked well with the cheese and jamon.

2009 Boekenhoutskloof The Chocolate Block - I've never had this wine and was kinda blown away by it.  An eclectic mix of Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Viognier.  The nose reminds me of Côte-Rôtie thanks to the Syrah plus Viognier.  Smoky, grilled meats, alcoholic, floral, sweet and yes, chocolate!  Very nice!

Full post on lunch is here.
