2009 d'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz McLaren Vale
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: McLaren Vale
93 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2011
Opaque ruby. A complex, floral-accented bouquet displays cherry-cola, cassis, bacon fat, licorice and candied violet. Initially firm and linear but quickly unfolds to offer sweet dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and an overlay of baking spices. Vanilla and cola nuances build with air and carry through a long, gently tannic, focused finish. Very rich but I get no impression of excess weight here.
