d'Arenberg The Galvo Garage 2008

d'Arenberg produce some most interesting blends, and this is another which not only engages interest but does the job well.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (72%), Merlot (13%), Cabernet Franc (9%), and Petit Verdot (6%), the result is a delicious and moreish wine which warms the soul.

Gutsy as many d'Arenberg wines are, the grunt is rounded off by a softer touch. Expect earthy, blackcurrant, Ribena and boot polish type characters. Textured oak and mulchy elements kick along with chocolatey and mint flavours hovering in the background.

A wine which will happily see time in the cellar for at least 5-8 years.

Throw it in a decanter and give it some air then sit back and enjoy with a lamb roast.
