The nose is dark, intense, and brooding with aromas of black cherries, cardamom, sweet tobacco, espresso, and subtle whiffs of perfume. The nose's dark fruit character follows through onto an exceptionally complex, juicy palate with gentle nuances of ripe plums, violets, black olives, cloves, and licorice. The mid-palate is focused, supple, and elegant with excellent, cocoa powdery tannins. The wine is mediumbodied, balanced with an earthy, layered character, covering the entire spectrum of berry fruit - from tart red plums to rich blue and blackberries. The finish is svelte, clean and dry, peppery and lingering, with hints of dried cranberry, tar, graphite, and smoke.

The 2020 The Chocolate Block has a clean, well-defined bouquet of red plum and black currant, plus touches of tangerine in the background. The palate is medium-bodied, plush and generous, with supple tannins and a very smooth, espresso-tinged finish. It no wonder The Chocolate Block has such wide appeal across the world.
