'Footbolt' pays homage to the name of the racehorse that founder Joseph Osborn had to sell in order to get the d'Arenberg winery off the ground in 1912. Big and bold on the nose with intense black fruit, cherry, plum and cocoa tones. Fresh and long, this will be a great option for grilled lamb or steak. (Vintages panel, Sept. 2015)
