Winemaker Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon was a standout from d'Arenberg's 2006 vintage, as flavors developed at a lower than normal baume giving complexity and depth to the flavor profile. The aromas are classic Cabernet with exotic dark plum, fragrant casis and an underlying mix of dark chocolate, cherries, cured meats and spiced violets. The palate has an impressive elegance, a wonderful juicy mid-palate and great richness. Immense structure and length with mineral acidity and fine lacy tannins directing the fruit.

Australian Wine Companion
A full-bodied array of predominantly black fruits with integrated tannins and oak; has all the ingredients.

Wine & Spirits
It's tempting to pick apart the elements of this blend-the curranty ripeness of cabernet sauvignon, the silken plumminess of merlot, the blackness of petit verdot and the green tobacco scents of franc. The wine combines all those elements in a richly textured red with the fresh scent of a eucalyptus grove. More restrained in its ripeness than d'Arenberg's McLaren Vale wines, this still delivers substantial flavors. Decant it for a thick-cut sirloin, grilled rare.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 The Galvo Garage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot which spent 10-12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it presents aromas of cedar, spice box, black currant and blackberry. Structured, dense, and savory, this firm effort will evolve for 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2021.

d'Arenberg, , Australia
One of the undisputed kings of Australian Shiraz and Rhone varietals, d'Arenberg has managed to turn individuality into an art form by doing a whole lot of little things differently. The original vineyards were established by Joseph Osborn in 1912 in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. A century on, the estate has grown to 345 acres, and the mantle now rests with fourth-generation winemaker, Chester Osborn. By maintaining a focus on traditional winemaking and nurturing their old-vine material, the Osborn clan has successfully established themselves as one of the country's leading producers of concentrated wines that are full of character.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
