Winemaker 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

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.

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.
