d'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz 2010

An excellent cellar-worthy prospect here. Gains in stature with time and air; unfurling, stretching and bulking up. If you approach now, please do so with a good decant.

Plum and black fruit, a dusting of dark cocoa powder with sweet oak perfume. Shows good weight on entry, with violets and plums adding to the package.

Touch of char in the middle, a chalky rub of tannin. Big and grunty, excellent length of flavour. Will be long lived. 93

Tasted on: Sunday 7th December, a Root to Flower day
