d’Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz 75cl
Tasting note :
Joseph Osborn was a successful racehorse owner and Footbolt was the pride of his stable. In 1912 he made the hard decision to sell his horses to purchase the d’Arenberg property.
The young Footbolt Shiraz has a deep red-purple hue, with the immediate hallmarks of spicy, lifted ripe peppery mulberry and blackberry fruit aromas. Richer chocolate, stewed plum mint and spicy, cedary pepper smells and cinnamon follow the initial attack of primary fruit characters.
Great wine to pair with beef fajitas, black bean soup, blue cheese, caramelized onion dip.
