Interesting wine. Usually Dead Arm is concentrated and rich. This bottle was less so. The fruit did not come through, and the bottle remained tight even though it was decanted for at least 2 hours before drinking. It was still nice but not as outstanding as this wine normally is. I assume this was bottle variation. Will have to see how the next bottle goes.
Outstanding bottle of wine, and so sad that it was my last 2004. So much depth and pure pleasure – was really singing. Remarkably reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux. All I have left is a couple of 2006s, and they just don't even compare.
