Winemaker's Notes

A Bordeaux blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot.

The term ‘garagists' is used to describe the producers in Bordeaux who make great wines in their garage outside of the ‘Appellation Controlee' system. d'Arenberg's galvanized, corrugated garage was built in 1927 and to this day, houses their traditional open fermenters and 19th century basket presses.

The 2004 Galvo Garage is an intense, full bodied wine worthy of aging. The nose exhibits classical cabernet characteristics- blackcurrant, cassis, ripe berries, black cherries, and dark plums. The palate is velvety with expressions of mulberries, cherries, and dark chocolate. The finish is balanced and vibrant.
