Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"A blend of 37% Syrah, 22% Mourvedre, 18% Carignan, 10% Petite Sirah, 10% Grenache and 4% Tannat raised in 25% new oak, the 2009 Chakalaka has a fresh bouquet with vibrant dark berried fruits, wild hedgerow and a touch of blueberry. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very good acidity and a vivacious finish of vibrant red fruits that beg another sip. For $20.00 this is great value."
