    Crafted by renowned winemakers Chester Osborn and Jack Walton of D’Arenberg, Dead Arm Shiraz 2017 is a masterpiece that draws its inspiration from the whims of nature. Named after a vine disease that paradoxically intensifies grape quality, this wine reflects the exceptional resilience of the vines.

    In the glass, it presents an inky, deep garnet color that captures the imagination. The aroma is a captivating dance of dark fruits, with notes of damson plum and fennel seed twists, all underpinned by balsamic-glazed beets and hints of roasted meats. The palate echoes the complexity of the bouquet with a rich, savory profile. Dark berries, iodine, and dried herbs intermingle with fragrant spices and currants, creating a symphony of flavors that evolve sip after sip.

    Structured for longevity, the Dead Arm Shiraz reveals slaty, mineral-like tannins that provide a robust framework for aging. Despite its youthfulness, this wine exhibits impressive fruit intensity and remarkable balance. The tannins are weighty yet refined, giving rise to a sleek, dense, and enduring mouthfeel. This Shiraz has a bright future ahead, with the potential to evolve beautifully over two decades.

    The critical acclaims further underscore its excellence: receiving 92 points from Wine Advocate, 94 points from Decanter, 94 points from James Suckling, 94 points from Wine and Spirits, and 93 points from Wilfred Wong. Collectively, these accolades highlight the exceptional nature of the Dead Arm Shiraz 2017, a wine that masterfully captures nature’s artistry in every sip.

    D’Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz 2017 is more than a wine; it’s a testament to nature’s resilience and the artistry of its makers. This bottle is not merely enjoyed; it’s an experience to be savored, a journey through complexity and history.

    Critical Acclaim

    Wine Advocate
    Locked up tight and ungiving on the nose, d'Arenberg's 2017 The Dead Arm Shiraz is nonetheless formidably dense and concentrated on the palate. Notes of charred wood join plums, raspberries and black olives in this full-bodied effort. With its current surly disposition, it appears to require decanting or several years' sleep in a cool cellar. Giving it air helped bring out purple raspberries and softened the considerable tannins, so I'm optimistic about its future evolution.

    Decanter
    A very dry but mild growing season with many cool nights has produced a lifted Shiraz of good intensity and detail. Bright blackberry fruit is riven with red licorice and fennel seed spice plus dried rose top notes. Plentiful but fine minerally, earthy tannins lend structure and length. For now, wearing its alcohol very well – highly promising.

    James Suckling
    This is a very composed and nicely layered rendition of this top-end shiraz with aromas of cocoa, dark plums, blackberries, cinnamon, licorice and dark cherries. The palate has a very impressive build of ripe dark-fruit and chocolate flavors. Layered and expansive, it swells impressively through the finish. Smoothly resolved and gently spicy. Drink or hold.

    Chester Osborn’s collection of old-vine shiraz parcels includes a lot of plants that have lost a limb to Eutypa, a vine disease; they now concentrate their efforts on the fruit growing on the remaining arms. This 2017 shows that concentration in a wine that radiates sun from its blue-black fruit contrasted with earthiness in its rooty, radish-like tannins.

    COMMENTARY: The 2017 d'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz deftly combines elements from both the Old and New Worlds. TASTING NOTES: This wine is generous in black fruit, savory spices, leather, and oak. Enjoy it with slow-braised meat dishes. (Tasted: September 24, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
