The Chocolate Block 2012 Shiraz Blend mini review

Inky dark in color with a nose of black berries. On the mid pallet there are lots of dark berries to match the nose along with some chocolate/mocha notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely dryness. I would give the wine an 88-89. A nice wine but pricey.
