Below is the July, 2008 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:



2004 d'Arenberg

"The Sticks and Stones"

Tempranillo/Grenache/Souzao Blend

McLaren Vale, South Australia

 

d'Arenberg WinerySince the construction of the d'Arenberg winery in 1928, its highly regarded red wines have been predominantly Grenache-based. Chief winemaker, Chester Osborn, was one of the first to plant Tempranillo in McLaren Vale as this variety appears well-suited to the region, and is a traditional blending partner for Grenache. To this blend, Souzao was added for its color stability, acidity and natural resistance to oxidation.

Very loud flowers and ripe dried herbs are detected in the exotic aroma, along with a wide array of fruits - cherries, cranberries, mulberries, plums, boysenberries and blackberries. Also showing is a warm, rich, earth character leading into forest floor.

The palate is immediately fruity with all sorts of red and blackberries, lots of dark cherries, boysenberries and a seam of violets working through. It is rich and juicy with lively, gritty tannins. A very long earth and dried herb flavor ends with a twist of licorice and blackberry.

This is a big wine built for the long haul and is recommended to be cellared for many years.
