    ($35) Deep red. Explosive bouquet of rich, deep blackberry and cassis, musky herbs, anise and mocha. A shapely wine, with a plush, rounded texture and sweet, penetrating wild berry and herb flavors that call to mind a top-notch Chateauneuf du Pape. Finishes on a sweet note of boysenberry, with gentle, well-knit tannins.

    Garnet rim reveals age. Savory red fruit aromas, with hint of eucalypt. Broad shouldered wine, full of brooding red fruit flavors and a touch of rhubarb. Long and deep, with plenty of tannin for the long haul. This wine was tasted in a flight with 2000 Bryant Cab and more than held its own, even better in some eyes. Well done, Chester. Exceptional!

    Outstanding, but may take a few years to mellow out. Very intense, rich dark fruit, fantastic nose. A bit brisk on the palate, but great lingering finish. This is a Grenache?? Wow..

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.
