d'Arenberg d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache 2012



This is the best of the d'Arenberg new releases at this price point.  A 50/50 blend of shiraz and grenache from McLaren Vale, it's a tasty wine in the glass.  Its aromatics remind of licorice, sweet plum, blueberry, cherry jam and fresh leather.  The palate has soft tannins, medium length and gluggable fruit (I shall resist the spellchecker's insistence on gullible).  Overall, this is a balanced wine, verging on delicious.

Rating: Good, Abv: 14.5%, Price: $18, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.darenberg.com.au, Tasted: 2015
