Red Wine by d’Arenberg from McLaren Vale, Australia. A classic Cabernet in every sense. The nose, allowed time to open evolves from mushroom, olive and salami to more typical purple fruits, blackcurrant and violets, backed by ripples of freshly torn mint, sage and oregano. A rich, but chiseled palate follows, framed by layers of long, chalky tannins. This sleek, seamless wine has an unmistakable air of class. Enticing in youth with a promise of greater depth and elegance to reward careful, patient cellaring.
