($35; a Bordeaux blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot and cabernet franc) Dark red. Spicy red and blackcurrant, cherry, licorice and cigar box aromas, with a suggestion of mint. Solid but supple, too, with sweet cassis and espresso flavors along with a touch of eucalyptus and pepper. Finishes with a note of spicy oak.

The 2003 The Galvo Garage (a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot) is outstanding. Its deep ruby color is accompanied by aromas of cedar wood, spice box, black currants, and fruitcake. Medium-bodied with outstanding depth, purity, and overall balance, this fairly priced beauty should drink well for 4-7 years.

About This Producer


In 1984, head winemaker Chester d'Arenberg Osborn, the fourth generation d'Arenberg to work the estate, ambitiously began revitalizing the old vineyards and cellars, investing in improvements that would propel the winery into the next century. White wine production began, to complement the winery's existing production of Shiraz, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon, among other varieties. Being blessed with excellent McLaren Vale location, d'Arenberg strives to create wines that reflect the land's natural bounty. All their wines are fermented and produced in small batches, providing a larger pool of blending options for each final bottling. The winery's operation is truly "estate" from vineyard to bottle, quite an affair when over 30 different wines are produced each vintage. D'Arenberg is well-known for its The Dead Arm Shiraz, and produces two other "Icon" level wines from the oldest vines and best barrels: The Coppermine Road Cabernet Sauvignon and The Ironstone Pressings Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvedre.
