I’ve just decanted a bottle of d’Arenberg’s "The Galvo Garage" 2002, which I found in my local LCBO for C$29.95. I picked it up on a whim, not knowing anything about it other than the fact that I’ve enjoyed just about every d’Arenberg wine I’ve purchased. It’s a classic Bordeaux blend — cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot, cabernet franc.
It opens up quickly, with a slightly alcoholic, but very fruity nose. Classic bordeaux flavours — cassis, dark berries, and almost a green apple tartness, and a nice finish. Dinner isn’t for another hour. We’ll see how it evolves by then.
