The 2021 d’Arenberg Cab pours forth in a dark and brooding opaque red and inky purple in the glass. On the nose it hits you with ripe black currant, mulberry, plum, black cherry fruits intermixed in dry baking spices, herbs and cocoa. The texture is rich in ripe red and black fruit flavors that are lifted with suede like tannins, spice and violet. The supple tannins frame the wine quite nicely, making it a great pairing for seared rare flank steak roulade with a shitake mushroom stuffing, beef tartare or herb crusted lamb pops. This is a lot of wine for the price.
