D'Arenberg 2018 D'Arry's Original Grenache-Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

There's a savory, peppery note atop the plum and blackcurrant fruit on this fleshy Grenache, Shiraz blend that adds interest, particularly with time opening in glass or a decanter. It's that pepper, licorice, brambly fruit and heady spice combo that reels you in, then the palate seals the deal. The tongue is cinched by a distinctive line of spicy, talc-textured tannins unique to this brand. They're big, but unlike others in the vast stable of d'Arenberg reds, they're in balance with the plummy fruit and secondary flavors. Christina Pickard
