d’Arenberg d’Arry’s Original Shiraz Grenache 2016
A bargain. The original d’Arenberg red and in classic form. Career-best form. Labuschagne form. Red fruits aplenty, as usual, and carries plenty of that tilled earth d’Arenberg savouriness, the plusher Shiraz lifting up the tannic palate. It’s both chewy and plush and packed with character for $20. BBQ’s are made for this. Best drinking: now to ten years. 17.5/20, 91/100. 14%, $20. Would I buy it? Worth a bottle.
