James Suckling, 94 Points 

"This is a very composed and nicely layered rendition of this top-end shiraz with aromas of cocoa, dark plums, blackberries, cinnamon, licorice and dark cherries. The palate has a very impressive build of ripe dark-fruit and chocolate flavors. Layered and expansive, it swells impressively through the finish. Smoothly resolved and gently spicy. Drink or hold." 

Decanter, 94 Points 

"A very dry but mild growing season with many cool nights has produced a lifted Shiraz of good intensity and detail. Bright blackberry fruit is riven with red licorice and fennel seed spice plus dried rose top notes. Plentiful but fine minerally, earthy tannins lend structure and length. For now, wearing its alcohol very well – highly promising." 

Wine & Spirits, 94 Points 

"Chester Osborn’s collection of old-vine shiraz parcels includes a lot of plants that have lost a limb to Eutypa, a vine disease; they now concentrate their efforts on the fruit growing on the remaining arms. This 2017 shows that concentration in a wine that radiates sun from its blue-black fruit contrasted with earthiness in its rooty, radish-like tannins." 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"Locked up tight and ungiving on the nose, d'Arenberg's 2017 The Dead Arm Shiraz is nonetheless formidably dense and concentrated on the palate. Notes of charred wood join plums, raspberries and black olives in this full-bodied effort. With its current surly disposition, it appears to require decanting or several years' sleep in a cool cellar. Giving it air helped bring out purple raspberries and softened the considerable tannins, so I'm optimistic about its future evolution."  

Alcohol: 15%
