d'Arenberg The Galvo Garage 2014


As with many of the d'Arenberg blends, this has a big frame and the muscle to carry it. A blend of  Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Merlot 54/23/23 from McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.

 The savoury characteristics are what I enjoy the most in this wine. Sure there is dark and plummy fruit as well as what seems mandarin peel, but ferrous and earthy elements plus dried herbs loom large too. Give it air and more layers of interest come calling. Blueberries take their time to surface and I'm pleased they did. Dark chocolate enters the fray later too. There's a big hit of tannin too drawing moisture from the mouth, This will live long.

Drink 2020 to ten years+
