2008 d'Arenberg Shiraz The Footbolt McLaren Vale
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: McLaren Vale
88(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010
($19) Bright violet. Initially reduced nose of dark berry skin and cherry pit opens up with aeration to offer spicy floral and dark fruit scents and a hint of licorice. Wound pretty tight today and slow to offer much beyond primary fruit in the mouth. Finishes with good grip and focus, repeating the dark fruit skin notes. This needs some time to settle down but there appears to be a lot of fruit here.
