Food Pairings for D'Arenberg Shiraz Blend Mclaren Vale d'Arrys Original Shiraz Grenache
Another Aussie wine that brings out great QPR. Starting out, the nose was kinda difficult to catch - when you do, you get a whiff of crushed cherries and some herb, maybe thyme. Generally fruit-forward tastes of fleshy black cherries, a little oak and leather at the end. You can really taste the skin contact as the tannins are more pronounced. It matched nicely with a piece of steak the 1st day. On the second day, I had it with some buffalo chicken wings, and quite pleased that it stood up to the buffalo wing spices I did notice that it kinda lost its balance a bit after a day, but still good nevertheless. It has a screw cap, which comes in really handy for those outdoor venues.
A nice drinking wine. Needed some time to open up. In hindsight, should have decanted. Lots of fruit, some heat and a long finish.

External Reviews for D'Arenberg Shiraz Blend Mclaren Vale d'Arrys Original Shiraz Grenache
Wine Advocate ReviewOne of my consistent favorites from d'Arenberg is their d'Arry's Original, and the terrific 2004 is a super value. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by beautiful blackberry, cassis, cherry, and licorice scents with hints of Provencal herbs and pepper in the background. This medium to full-bodied, front end-loaded blend of Shiraz and Grenache possesses considerable fruit, body, and silky tannins as well as enough acidity to provide definition. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
