Drank from an awesome friends cellar. I have not had good d'Arenberg experiences. I expected more from the wines. This one delivered. Great nose. Decant this bad boy for a couple hours. Medium finish,does not improve too much after time. A great drop to open with an Amery companion. Drink now cos it aint got much left to offer.
Opened for an hour and a half prior to tasting. No signs of brown in the colour. Great fragrance, strong, slight floral, damp, ash. A bit jammy in the mouth, good coating. Medium finish but probably masked by the jamminess and opinion skewed by the great nose. Look I am not a D'Arenberg ra-ra boy, not usually a fan, but I like this wine and this is my last of six of these. Drink now, it will keep for a year or so but will not get any better, dont risk it, just drink.
