2008 d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz McLaren Vale
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: McLaren Vale
92 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2010
($65) Glass-staining purple. Dark berries, licorice, Indian spices, violet and cocoa powder on the highly complex nose. Concentrated and tactile, with superb depth and noteworthy definition to the black cherry and dark berry preserve flavors. Wonderfully broad but lively on the long, sappy, penetrating finish. The tannins are chewy but in no way dry or hard. The wine's excellent fruit will allow for early drinking.
