2001 d'Arenberg Shiraz The Dead Arm

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Friday, February 1, 2013 - Punchy nose of blackberry, strawberry and maybe something like eucalyptus? Dark almost black cherry color (zero signs of age), viscous mouth feel and teeth darkening. Full of flavor of (?) black cherry with a thin ribbon of licorice?

Have to admit to becoming Aussie Shiraz palate fatigued over the years, and this has small bit of that over-produced,overly viscous barrel of oil fruit experiment that I think we've all turned from. But still, for a bottle that cost maybe $40 or so this was a serious value.
