3.5 stars "Just wanted to try it although I know it should've been cellared for at least 2 more yrs. Nice fragrant nose, and the tannins are bold but far from harsh. May be exceptionally nice after the recommended 2 additional yrs cellar time."

95 points "d’Arenberg’s most famous wine is its flagship, The Dead Arm Shiraz. The 2005 The Dead Arm Shiraz is sourced from ancient hand-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 superconcentrated, this structured, lengthy wine will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and drink well through 2025." Best 2011-2025
