d'Arenberg The Derelict Vineyard Grenache 2014


Something about this just makes me think of Zoolander. 


Anyway, to the wine one supposes, it's a riot of fruit - fairly ripe, and sugar crusted. As I imagine. Towards the fuller spectrum. 

The palate is somewhat looser in construct, light and airy in presentation, a contrast to the palate. Open. Weave, fine tannin, dense and dark. 

Reminds more of a Southern Rhone representation on this showing. Observation. Nothing else. 90
