Default sabor a / olor a ??

Most days when I read a text in Spanish I am surprised by the use of some preposition or other. Todays is the use of a in the following:

La manteca de cacao es un sustancia grasa sólida que funde a 29° C, es de color blanco o amarillento y de olor y sabor a cacao. I would expect de olor y sabor DE cacao.... Are taste and smell always followed by the prep a?

Many thanks
