" The inspiration behind this name comes from the proverb "sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me." Funny how the quirky names that d'Arenberg uses for their top-flight, icon wines has never heart their image or their sales. The folks at d'Arenberg know that a great wine will always be a great wine, no matter what kind of goofy name is on the label. And this, my friends, is great wine! Huge! With lots of melting licorice and jobs of fruit, sweet as any pie filling your grandma could cook up. You may need some sticks and stones to keep your friends of drinking up your stash!"

93 points "Not a winery to rest on the status quo, d’Arenberg’s newest offering is the 2002 The Sticks and Stones Tempranillo/Grenache/Souzao (45%, 43%, and 12% respectively, the latter being a Portuguese varietal). Unfortunately, only tiny quantities are produced of this terrific effort. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by aromas of roasted meats, violets, blueberries, blackberries, incense, and a hint of Chinese black tea. This medium to full-bodied, loaded 2002 boasts a terrific texture and formidable concentration. I’m a sucker for young wines, but this one could use 1-2 years of bottle age; it should last for 10-15 years." Best 2005-2019
