Natalie's Score: 92/100

A concentrated, blockbuster of a wine with notes of black cherry liqueur, anise, cedar and blackberry. Almost jammy in its intensity, but satisfyingly so. A long, warm finish. Decants 2 hours. Shiraz food pairings: prime rib, goose, spicy fajitas, cherry filled chocolate.

Kevin rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

Aussie shiraz is more commonly thought of as big ballsy high alcohol fruit bombs. Dead Arm by d'Arenberg in Adelaide Hills is very different. This wine has a much more European feel; it's flavours of blackberry and herb are elegant rather than a kick in the teeth, the sweetness is subtle perfectly matched with defined tannins and superb length. Ridiculously good value - wine punches well above its weight.
Lynn Van Der Linde rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Fantastic Shiraz! Worth it's weight in gold, for all your Shiraz lovers. Aromas of bourbon, spice, oak, cigar box - and incredibly smooth for being so big.
