d'Arenberg The Stump Jump Red 2015
This wine delivers beyond what its modest price tag would suggest. The nose and palate are incredibly complex presenting blackberry, dark cherry, spicy plum, dried currants, straw, walnuts, wet soil, bramble and mushroom. The palate remains refined and sleek. A mixture of primary and secondary characters offering depth of flavor. Fine acidity and powdery tannins complete the experience adding life and savoriness.
Blend: Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre

|Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2013 The Stump Jump Grenache / Shiraz / Mourvdre displays a gorgeous kirsch, black raspberry and dried mint-scented nose with hints of anise and roses. Medium-bodied, it packs in the spicy berry coulis flavors with soft, velvety tannins and an herbal lift on the long finish.|
