The nose is very aromatic, floral and youthful. There is a fascinating amount of intensity that draws you back. The lavender floral notes along with plum and blackberries are the most pronounced while the enigmatic beauty of this wine lies in the next layer of extremely alluring pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of five-spice. The opulent palate is rich and dense with staggering concentration. Crushed ants, rhubarb, and deep earth add to the complexity. The chewy tannins are abundant and balanced by the fruit power. Building through the palate the tannins provide for a long, vibrant, savoury and spicy finish.

The Dead Arm Shiraz 2007 manages to balance focus and complexity superbly. The structure is muscular and the fruit powerful, yet it maintains a pretty elegance which is allowed to flourish with deft use of oak.

Tiny yields in 2007 resulted in a Dead Arm with wonderful concentration, chunky and dense with great depth, balance and length. This is delicious now if decanted; although Chester Osborn expects this to age well until 2022.

W&S 93 Wine & Spirits

The Dead Arm is Chester Osborn's punch drunk love song to his most ancient and physically challenged shiraz vines. Even in McLaren's difficult 2007 vintage, they produced a pretty astonishing wine. Its succulent raspberry flavor meets vibrant and sweet mineral character as the tannins sweep into the finish. Concentrated, supple and powerfully rich, this is a wine to buy in magnum and to serve at ten years of age with grilled lamb.

RP92Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

D'Arenberg's flagship is the 2007 The Dead Arm Shiraz. Opaque purple-colored, the nose gives up aromas of meat, game, truffles, chocolate, blueberry, and blackberry. Firm, layered, and complex, this beautifully rendered Shiraz demands 5-7 years of cellaring. It will be at its best from 2015 to 2027.
