External Reviews for D'Arenberg Shiraz Mclaren Vale the Dead Arm
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... Wine Spectator.
...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... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 1999 d'Arenberg The Dead Arm 750ml
Upon release d’Arenberg’s The Dead Arm Shiraz has a vivid young deep purple colour. The nose shows intense and complex cedary, fig, blackberry and blueberry like smells occasionally pepper/spice smells too. Vanilla mocha oak smells and attacking blackberry, cassis characters are also evident on the palate. Full, intense sweet, cedary middle palate flavours have a distinctly silky, svelte texture deceptively disguises the rich powerful cassis and toffee-mocha flavours. The accent is on powerful full-bodied berry fruit flavour, with a little sweet English toffee- like oak evident on the juicy, rolling finish. After time in bottle the d’Arenberg’s Dead Arm gains a biscuity, cinnamon, caramel and eucalyptus based bouquet on top of rich blackberry pie smells. Tobacco, mushrooms, malt, and earth aromas play a part on the long, elegant fleshy, chocolate mint flavours. Restrained tannin and acidity coupled with rich alcohol, produce a seamless, peppery, velvety rolling length. Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: Serve at room temperature 16 – 24 �C. now or cellar for the next 3- 25 years with bold, rich, robust meals, especially roasted meats and vegetables, stews and casseroles, offal, sweet potato, salt bush lamb, oxtail, mushrooms or truffles. Also, sausages and gravy and haricot beans on rare prime steak. Serve after decanting as an older wine.
