A nice drinking wine. Needed some time to open up. In hindsight, should have decanted. Lots of fruit, some heat and a long finish. Read more

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.

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.

For over four decades, veteran Aussie vintner d'Arry Osborn has made this classic Shiraz-Grenache blend. Now his son Chester helps produce the soft, rich wine with its engaging cherry and berry flavors.
