94 Points James Halliday
Clean and quite fragrant; abundant blackberry and dark chocolate fruit; controlled extract and good balance. Poor quality cork. Drink to 2015.

93 Points Robert Parker
After re-tasting the 2002 The Dead Arm Shiraz, I believe my initial rating is correct. It still plays it close to the vest, exhibiting loads of cassis, asphalt, smoke, and barbecue spice-like aromas along with full-bodied flavors. While well-made and impressive, it remains backward and restrained, and does not appear to be up to the quality of either the 2003 or the great 2001.
