d'Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz 2011
Wine SpectatorDark and spicy, showing blackberry notes at the core, with savory spice and meat accents on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 4,200 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color, the 2011 The Footbolt Shiraz is scented of crushed blackberries and black cherries with hints of anise and mint. Medium to full-bodied with mouth-filling blackberry and menthol flavors, it has a low to medium level of soft tannins and finishes with good length and harmony, if a bit simply. Drink it now to 2016.
