The Wine Advocate
This estate's most renowned offering is their old vine Shiraz (90+ year old vines) called The Dead Arm. The unfined/unfiltered 1999 The Dead Arm Shiraz was aged in 100% new oak, of which 70% was American and 30% French. It is about as natural and unmanipulated a product of the vineyard as one can find. Full-bodied and awesomely rich, notes of black pepper, licorice, and blackberry as well as cherry liqueur cascade over the palate with enormous concentration and intensity, high tannin, and a structured, muscular style. It is a timeless museum piece made in a style that can only be produced in Barossa or McLaren Vale.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #143



91/100
Wine Spectator
Polished, round and generous with its cherry, berry and spice flavors, hinting at vanilla and smoke on the ripe finish. This favors grace over power.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 30 2002



91/100
Wine Companion
Dense red-purple; powerful, concentrated, deep black cherry and plum fruit on the bouquet is replicated on the rich and concentrated palate; fruit-driven plus a boost from 14.5° alcohol; the tannins and oak present no problem, although there is a hint of adjusted acidity on the finish.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2001
