D`Arenberg Shiraz The Dead Arm 2009,  (WA95, ST93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

D`Arenberg Shiraz The Dead Arm

Vintage: 2009
Region: Australia
Appellation: McLaren Vale

WA95, ST93
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 The Dead Arm Shiraz presents an intense and complex nose of blackberry preserves and dried mulberries over coffee, black olives, smoky bacon and humus. The palate is richly fruited and nicely balanced with layers of savory and dark berry flavors and crisp acid textured by medium-firm finely grained tannins. It finishes long with hints of menthol and marmite toast coming through. It should be drinking best 2013 to 2024+.`Additional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `The d`Arenberg winery is 100 years old with a fourth generation Osbourne in charge today of this now considerable operation. Graduated from Roseworthy College in 1983, Chester was expected by his father to change things when he took over the family business. Instead he went back to tradition rather than modernizing. In the d`Arenberg vineyards there is no cultivating, fertilizing or herbicides used - Chester compares these artificial means to growing plants hydroponically. Looking to continually improve the root systems of his vines, he rarely irrigates. Average yields are 1.7 tons per acre. `2011 was actually a great year for us,` Chester informed me. `We didn`t have any problems with rot.``
