D'Arenberg 2017 d'Arry's Original Grenache-Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

This 50-50 blend of Grenache and Shiraz from a comparatively cool vintage, starts out fleshy, fruity and attractive, with ripe blueberries and violets at the fore, backed by soft peppercorn and earthy, savory spice. Then come the tannins—chiseled, drying, granular in texture and all-encompassing. The fruit manages to poke its head out but is soon muscled out by the massive tannins that don't quite integrate.
