STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

D'Arenberg's classic power play between juicy, tangy fruit and muscular tannins is in full force here. Rubarb, plum, cherry cordial and peppery, earthy spice are hemmed in by chalky, taut and slightly aggressive tannins. Like a chiseled jawline, it is angular yet expressive, finely structured and attractive. A high-protein food companion is a must. 90/100 Points The WIne Enthusiast
