95 Points Robert Parker

Year in and year out d'Arenberg's finest cuvee is their spectacular Shiraz made from 100+ year old, head-pruned vines. It is an exquisite, multi-dimensional wine that is sure to make a formidable impression with readers. It is aged in 100% new oak, tipping the scales at a whopping 14.9% alcohol, yet has a glorious level of fruit and extract. The 1997 Dead Arm Shiraz exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a sweet nose of vanillin, blackberries, and licorice. The wood frames this enormously concentrated, rich, chewy wine. Multi-layered, with phenomenal concentration and length as well as moderately high tannin levels, it will be at its finest after 2-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for two decades.

96 Points James Halliday

Dense red-purple; an exceptional rich, full and concentrated bouquet with lushly ripe fruit married with oak. The palate effectively replicates the bouquet, finishing with soft tannins. Top gold 1998 National Wine Show. Drink to 2012.
