D'Arenberg's flagship is the 2006 The Dead Arm Shiraz. Opaque purple-colored, the nose is reticent but gives up aromas of meat, bacon, game, truffles, blueberry, and blackberry. Firm, layered, and complex, this beautifully rendered Shiraz demands a decade of cellaring. It will be superb from 2018 to 2036. Score - 95+. (Jay Miller, erobertparker.com, Feb. 2009)
This dry purplish red coloured wine features intense empyreumatic, spicy, fruity and mineral scents and offers a broad texture as well as fleshy tannins.
Purple-red colour with intense aromas of spices, violets, dark cherry, blackberry, blueberry, liquorice, pepper and boot-polish. The taste is rich, gutsy and virile, with spice, dark liquorice, cherry, blackberry plum and dried black olive.
Earthy notes combined with dark fruits, fennel and baking spice. Notes of sweeter berry fruit laced with more of those soily, forest floor notes. The palate is dense and concentrated with a plethora of fruit characters, plum, blackberry, mulberry, earth, iodine and black olive. Textural tannins that seem to persist in the mouth forever.
