It is a deep full bodied red, just what you would expect from South Africa, but the Viognier gives it a playful openness that I really enjoy. Founded in 1776, Boekenhoutskloof is one of the oldest farms situated up the "Valley" in the Franschhoek foothills. Marc Kent is the wine-maker, cellar-master, and part owner of this homestead and wine farm. We enjoyed a bottle last week with some terrific skirt steaks done in a tamari, ginger, honey marinade, steamed baby bok choy and a coconut rice. The wine went really well with the spicy, garlicky Asian flavors. Tonight I paired with some delicious pork baby back ribs, "Lloyd's", in a classic bar-b-que sauce, sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar, cole slaw and mixed veggie's. Again absolutely perfect. The wine is full of great fruit, red and black berries, a touch of tartness, it rolls over the tongue with seductive flavors. There is a dark earthiness, not heavy, some may say cocoa, it adds a level of complexity and a solid base for the flowery violet flavors and peppery sensations that are intertwined. Very smooth on the palate the nose has soft aromas of wild strawberries and cherries.
