d'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz 2014

Deep. Dense. It's quite a dark individual, glimpses of its damson like fruit as it lies in a deep slumber. Hints of oak, leather, cedar even poke their heads out as the whole starts to unravel. 

Take this beast unto your mouth, its chewy grippy tannin really making its presence known. Black fruits, spice all condensed into this palate that would have a physicist guessing at the matter within. 

It's an impressive release, the 14s - perhaps with the exception of the cautious review of the GSM - are in an exemplary place. 94
