Almost black in colour with purple flints - excellent depth. The bouquet is tight, demonstrating pine needles, dusty cherries, liquorice and beef blood.

Excellent acid balance with good fruit concentration building in the mid palate finishing with dry grainy tannins.

92/100
Wine Spectator
Firm in texture, an immensely refined style that weaves some earthy, gamy notes through the dark, ripe berry and spice flavors, finishing long and beautifully focused. Needs time to settle into itself and shed some tannin, and then, wow.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: May 31 2004



92/100
The Wine Advocate
A classic, old style Australian Shiraz aged in American oak. Its deep plum/purple color is accompanied by damp earth, pepper, fig, and black currant characteristics. Chewy, intensely concentrated, and nearly over the top, it is not for those who seek elegant, light-bodied wines with restrained fruit flavors. This is a muscular, macho-styled red.

d'Arenberg-The Dead Arm-Shiraz-2001-750mL

Upon release, ‘The Dead Arm’ Shiraz has a vivid, young, dense, purple-red colour. Very intense aromas with a complex combination of fragrant spices and violets, dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry, are made more complex with great liquorice, pepper and integrated svelte of boot-polish like characters. The taste is rich, gutsy and virile, with attacking spice, dark liquorice, cherry, blackberry, plum and dried black olive. The level of fruit weight masks the framework of oak tannins; however, the mineral fruit grittiness is balanced with a very long fruit-fragrant, persistent spice will yield a wine of great ageing power.

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.
