D’Arenberg “The Galvo Garage” 2002: redux

It’s almost three hours since we opened the d’Arenberg Galvo Garage.  Dinner was one of my favorite fall dinners — beef, stewed with a medley of root vegetables, mushrooms and a few of those serrano peppers I’ve been harvesting all summer. The wine was a terrific accompaniment.  The tannins cut the richness of the beef, and the fruit was powerful enough to be a complement to the spice of the peppers.  It’s got a taste of black currents, bitter cherry, and perhaps a little black plums, with a long, slightly tannic finish.  It’s very drinkable now with the kind of meal we ate this evening, albeit with prominent tannins.  With another year or two in the cellar, this could be a fantastic wine.Â
