d'Arenberg's The Athazagoraphobic Cat is a red wine blend of Sagrantino and Cinsault. Named after Audrey Hepburn and nicknamed Ordinary, Audrey was a plain tabby cat. Suffering from Athazagoraphobia, the fear of being forgotten, she was often trotting close to Chester's heels. Like Audrey, this wine will be hard to forget with tannins and lush red fruits lingering on the palate, long after the bottle is empty.

A nose of raspberry and violets is underlaid with a host of complex earthy, woody spice notes. A pure, fruity flavour blends intricately with a complex savouriness, the abundance of red fruit and florals balanced in a sleek mouthfeel. Lively acidity balances with layers of fine tannins, combining with the lush fruit flavours to linger with a persistent length on the palate.
