94/100
Wine Companion
Oozing licorice, spice, blackberry and chocolate; very ripe and rich; tannins not overdone.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2003



93/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2002 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz/Viognier is the La Mouline of McLaren Vale. An exotic, heady, flamboyantly-styled red, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of lychee nuts, acacia flowers, blackberries, and creme de cassis. Supple-textured and opulent, with pepper, licorice, and blackberry liqueur-like flavors, this beautiful wine is made in a modern, progressive style with terrific fruit intensity along with notions of sweet French oak in the background.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



91/100
Wine Spectator
A lithe, lively red with a lovely subtle streak of apricot and spice running through the blackberry, blueberry and peppery spice flavors, beautifully balanced right through the harmonious finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Dec 15 2003

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2002-750mL

The 2002 season was characterised by a cold, wet winter and spring, which produced lower yields with good, thick-skinned berries. The cool and dry summer ripened fruit gradually and a warm, dry autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully, producing some of the best and most exotic characters seen for many years.

d'Arenberg-The Coppermine Road-Cabernet Sauvignon-2002-750mL

The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year. These aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry, and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.
