d'Arenberg Sticks n Stones 2014

An odd blend, fusing some of the best the Iberian Peninsula has to offer, being formed of Tempranillo (37%), Grenache (36%), Souzao (25%), Tinta Cao (2%).

Has on offer a curious combination of the dark sullen nature that Tempranillo and Grenache sometimes bring to the party, yet elevated by the floral elements that Tinta Cao and Souzao (better known as Port varieties) themselves bring. 

Light on entry, fine-grained tannins, on a decent length. 89 

Tasted on: Sunday 24th June, a Flower day
Source: Sample
Price: $29
Alcohol: 14.5%
Closure: Screwcap
