95 points "The Dead Arm is one of a handful of Australian Shiraz that is a top performer vintage after vintage. The name comes from a vine disease that reduces one arm of a vine to dead wood, while the rest of the vine produces intensely-flavored grapes. Aged 20 months in French and American oak, the '06 Dead Arm is plump with dark fruits and berries, hints of anise and complex berry and chocolate flavors. The tannins are ripe and refined and the finish, at 14.5% alcohol, is complete and promising. Here is an excellent Australian Shiraz for the ages and a solid bargain."

96 points "Deep colour; vivid hue; fresh black fruits, licorice, toasty oak and sappy complexity are all evident on the bouquet; the palate is dark and chewy, but falls short of being ponderous, as the wine progresses at an even and stately pace across the palate; excellent execution indeed" Best 2017-2025
