Winemaker notes: Upon release, d'Arenberg's The Dead Arm Shiraz has a vivid, young, dense purple-red color. The nose shows intense and complex cedary, fig, blackberry, blueberry, and pepper aromas. Attacking spicy dark cherry, plum and blackberry fruit dominate the taste with a complex, slightly acetone, liquorice, prune richness and silkiness leading to a slight cedar, mineral and svelte array of tannins. The length comes right back to gritty, vibrant fruit tannins giving the wine great ageability. After time in bottle, the d’Arenberg Dead Arm gains a biscuity, cinnamon, caramel and eucalyptus based bouquet on top of rich blackberry pie smells. Tobacco, mushroom, malt and earth aromas play a part on the long, fleshy, chocolate mint and spice flavors. Restrained tannin and acidity coupled with rich alcohol produce a seamless, peppery, velvety, rolling length. Alejandro

Spice, dark fruits vanilla and chocolate on the nose with a full bodied palate. The palate is fruit driven with good structure and an excellent finish.

The 2004 The Dead Arm Shiraz was a top five at a wine event I recently attended that featured over 100 wines. This fab, full-bodied wine has a beautiful dark purple color that’s impossible to resist. This wine's bold blackberry, peppery spice flavors are explosive, and although still young it’s pleasantly tannic and complex.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
