92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (10/2009)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a red that makes you want to drink the whole bottle now. Blackberry and currants on the nose. Full to medium body, with a beautiful core of fruit and ripe tannins that fill your mouth. Bordeaux blend. Enjoy tonight. Ribs anyone? Inner quote mark (2/2011)

Outer quote mark 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. The d’Arenberg portfolio is loaded with values Inner quote mark (12/2009)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Ruby-red. Intensely spicy bouquet displays bright red berry, cherry and eucalyptus scents, with a slow-mounting incense quality. Fresh and bracing, with lively redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors, fine-grained tannins and late-arriving sweetness. Finishes with good energy and lift, leaving a subtle note of candied flowers behind. Inner quote mark (9/2008)
