d'Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz 2014


The 2014 is a good release of d'Arenberg's "Footbolt" shiraz, the spellchecker resolutely preferring "football".  Light on its feet, it has aromas of perfume and spice.  The palate is full bodied and Rhône like.  Ready to drink now, I'd buy this.  (Region: McLaren Vale, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: now to 2022, Tasted: Jan, 2017, Source: Sample)
