Winemaker's Notes

In its youth d'Arenberg's The Twentyeight Road Mourvèdre has a deep bright crimson ruby color with lifted, spicy clove, cranberry and ripening blackberry primary fruit smells, elements of mulberry, light blackcurrant, cinnamon and vanilla licorice as well as mint and flowers, especially violets which are also evident on the young palate. Its medium to full flavored fruit weight dominating softer, rounded vanilla mocha oak flavors, before a long fine acid and slightly sour cherry tannin like finish.

After some bottle age d'Arenberg's The Twenty Eight Road Mourvèdre should soften in color to more cedary, brick red hues and the nose develop more tobacco, coffee and spicy black olive smells whilst retaining underlying cranberry and floral scents as well as hints of pine needle and tar which can also be found in the mouth. The palate should also develop and integrate with soft prune, cranberry, velvety earthly chocolate flavors and a vibrant fresh acid and fine grained tannin finish for quite some considerable time.

Alcohol: 13.1% by volume
