It's time to think about wines for cooler weather, such as this one from South Africa. Boekenhoutskloof's "The Chocolate Block" is a red Rhone blend, like a South African version of Châteauneuf-du-Pape — Syrah-dominated but with some Cabernet. And that chocolate in the name? The flavor is woven into this warm, full-blooded wine, along with notes of coriander, black pepper and dark berries.

Another great red we just tried (thanks Tab/Meghan!)

Here's a varietal you don't hear much about.  And it was farmed at a 1,200 ft. elevation.
