d’Arenberg The Galvo Garage Cabernet Merlot ,Cabernet Franc ,Petit Verdot
The nose is lifted, fragrant and inviting, cassis and blueberry are evident without being dominant. This allows the tomato vine, herb and leafy earthiness to play an equal part of what is a complex aroma.
The palate is savoury, spicy and elegant. It’s deep and dark with rhubarb adding to the fruit spectrum and sitting alongside a subtle violet nuance and savoury elements of dark chocolate and dried herbs. There is no explosion of fruit, but rather an elegant and gradual building of complexity with persistent mineral, chalky tannins providing authoritative, balanced structure.
