[Alone] Initally, floral nose; blackberries, plum, mint with peppery/spicy finish. Let decant over night and the floral scents and mint disappeared left with substanital fruit and slight pepper. More my style the second night (though it became a litte bit of a fruit bomb). Overall a good value at $13, however, I haven't bought more.

Sitting here drinking this now. God it's good! Rich and heavy, verging on fortified. Fruit in abundance and all the other stuff wine writers write. The perfect accompaniment to a passionate kiss. If this wine was a lover you'd leave your spouse for it. This is what good Pomerol should taste like, but Dead Arm 2001 comes at a fraction of the price.

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.

ne of this estate s flagship wines, the 2003 The Dead Arm Shiraz appears to be better than the 2002. A deeper, richer, fuller-bodied offering that spent time in equal parts French and American oak, it possesses an opaque purple color, great intensity, and a fabulously sweet nose of blackberries, cassis, asphalt, earth, and oak. Powerful, super-concentrated, and obviously fashioned from low yields and old vines, this is a classic McLaren Vale old vine Shiraz that should age nicely for 15+ years.
