2002 d'Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz
A full bodied red. Totally opaque black crimson colour with deep crimson hue- the colour leads to a high palate expectation that is certainly met. Aroma of violets, cedar, vanilla and blackberry – not powerful but quite evident. The palate delivers the weight and flavour concentration that the colour has indicated. Very ripe plum, vanilla and spice flavours are integrated with a blackpepper back palate, over layered by liquorice which runs well into the aftertaste. Excellent balance, with fine grained tannins.
Cellar 3-4 years (2007-2008)
