    Winemaker's Notes:

    The lifted nose is packed with dark fruit, attractive spice and cracked pepper. There is a lifted floral note that brings elegance to what is clearly a generous wine. A velvety palate flaunts a core of concentrated red and dark fruits with hints of licorice and lavender supported by fine, subtle tannins.

    67% Shiraz, 33% Grenache

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby. Very fresh, aromatic nose features black raspberry, violet, black pepper and licorice. Juicy and perfumed in the mouth, with a light touch to the intense red and dark berry and candied violet flavors. Quite brisk and refreshing, with zesty acidity adding spine. The spicy note carries through on the fruit-driven finish.

    International Wine Cellar

    The much-loved and admired d'Arry Osborn provided the foundation for son Chester (of kaleidoscopic and wild hair fame) to dramatically increase the sales volume of d'Arenberg without compromising quality. This is a light- to medium-bodied wine at the start of its life, which sounds oxymoronic, but isn't, as the track record of this long-lived wine proves. Raspberry, cherry and plum fruit with a dusting of chocolate and spice runs right through the palate. The wine has deceptive cellaring strength.
