2008 d'Arenberg Shiraz/Viognier The Laughing Magpie McLaren Vale
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: McLaren Vale
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2010
($29; a 94/6 blend of shiraz and viognier) Inky purple. High-pitched dark berry and floral aromas are complicated by notes of black pepper and woodsmoke. Pliant, palate-coating dark fruit flavors are framed by velvety tannins, picking up a note of licorice on the back half. Surprisingly brisk, even taut, on the finish, which leaves spice and floral notes behind. This benefits quite a bit from aeration.
