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.
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.




Natalie's Review

d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2006, McLaren Vale, South Australia: 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. Drink: 2008-2013. 981183 14.50% D 750 mL  $55.95 Score: 92/100. December 6, 2008  Full Review
