d’Arenberg “d’Arry’s Original” Shiraz Grenache 2013

A return to form for one of the most dependable labels from McLaren Vale.

d’Arenberg, “d’Arry’s Original,” Shiraz Grenache, 2013

dArrys OriginalRich plum sauce with distinct Choc/Nut oak. Red currant lift and a touch of herby spearmint. Sandy, yet fine tannins permeate through those plump plum dark fruits. Brash and little rough around the edges, there’s a serious inky undercurrent and it’ll tuck away for 3-5 years. Like sitting in an old couch, it’s good to have the Original back.

RRP: $18

Alc: 14.5%
