    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose is full of blackcurrant and blueberry characters with a lovely mint leaf lift and a spicy undertone. The characters are ripe, yet remain balanced with touches of florals adding elegance.

    Dark plum and red fruits are added to the mix before a savoury mid palate emerges with soil characters, hints of coffee, black olive and more spice framed well by fine gravelly tannins and just a hint of oak. Considering the vintage conditions the generous fruit flavor is surprisingly well balanced by soil characters, flowers and leafy lift along with good tannin structure.

    Like all d'Arenberg wines decanting will help this wine show its true colours and it will age gracefully in the cellar for up to seven years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good colour; over the years, has often outperformed both its region and price point, and this is no exception; cassis and blackcurrant fruit drives through the medium-bodied palate to a long finish.

    Smooth and full-bodied with no bitter taste. A pleasure on the palette.

    Really good wine, not too heavy and fruitier than most Cab's. Definitely one to get again.

    To me D'Arenberg taste like no other you either hate it or love it and each vintage seems to test me. The 2008 was less tanic than the 2007 but lacked that back end Bit I like From Cab's. Buy the 2007 if you can and let it sit for a few years and mellow out.
