Huon Hooke

Good colour, oak-driven old fashioned style, with lashings of what appears to be American oak. Savoury palate, seems a trifle acidified - a tangy wine with lots of coconut-vanilla oak. Already has charcuterie/smoked meat developed bouquet. Good depth and weight in a traditional big Aussie style.

95 Points Robert Parker

D’Arenberg’s most famous wine is its flagship, The Dead Arm Shiraz. The 2005 The Dead Arm Shiraz is sourced from ancient head-pruned vines. It was aged for 22 months in a mix of new and used French and American oak. It is opaque purple/black with an expansive perfume of toast, smoke, spice box, mineral, pencil lead, tar, licorice, blueberry, and blackberry. Full-bodied, opulent, and super-concentrated, this structured, lengthy wine will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and drink well through 2025.

89 Points James Halliday

Some reduced characters blur the profile of the usually opulent fruit, introducing some bitter notes; not likely to recover. Drink to 2012.
