D'Arenberg 2011 The Sticks & Stones Red (McLaren Vale)

Like a sampler box of chocolates, this label of D'Arenberg blends four Spanish and Portuguese varieties: Tempranillo, Grenache, Tinta Cão and Souzão. Unfortunately 2011 was one of South Australia's toughest vintages on record and this wine doesn't quite make the grade. It's dense and oaky, with barely ripe plum, raspberry and vegetal notes. The palate offers some juicy fruit and the tannins are powerful and drying. Christina Pickard
