Medium to full-bodied, plenty of spicy red and black fruits, silky tannins, and good depth...excellent value.
Wine & Spirits Review Rated 93 Francis d'Arenberg Osborn, better known as d'Arry, developed this style in the late 1960s; his son, Chester, who makes the wine today, has taken some creative directions with other styles while continuing to defer to his father with this wine. And he nailed it in 2005. It's classical McLaren, with full-bore strawberry and raspberry fruit blowing through curtains of tannins that feel fresh despite their earthy weight. Rustic and pretty. Buy a case or more. You won't grow tired of it. Wine Tasting Notes The Shiraz Grenache is dark plum with great clarity and depth of color. The nose shows a minerality and spicy edge reflective of the cooler vintage, with plums, potpourri and dark chocolate notes. Cranberry and tamarillo fruit characters are provided by the Grenache component of the blend. The tightly structured palate is dominated by plums, mulberries, licorice spice and a touch of meatiness. It is balanced with fine acidity and long, dusty tannins. With age, this wine will soften further into a seamless, silky palate with complex earthy notes to complement the spicy berry, fruit.
