This year it tastes more like a d’Arenberg McLaren Vale red than a Tempranillo blend, dominated by the tilled earthy meaty wildness of so many modern d’Arenbarg reds, cut with the chewy, earthen, sweet and sour dryness too. It’s sweet and sour and less than clean, the earthiness awkward, drying and unpolished, with little fun to be had.
