This estate's most renowned offering is their old vine Shiraz (90+ year old vines) called The Dead Arm. The unfined/unfiltered 1999 The Dead Arm Shiraz (2,000 cases) was aged in 100% new oak, of which 70% was American and 30% French. It is about as natural and unmanipulated a product of the vineyard as one can find. Full-bodied and awesomely rich, notes of black pepper, licorice, and blackberry as well as cherry liqueur cascade over the palate with enormous concentration and intensity, high tannin, and a structured, muscular style...

Still plenty of life. Big Rich. Good texture. Somewhat muted nose.

Christmas dinner at home. The wine sat in my cellar for fifteen years. It opens up beautifully over two hours. Chewy. Cherry. Perfect with roast beef. Great structure.

Deep full bodied wine with notes of dark berries and spices. Surprisingly complex wine with good tannins that develop with some decanting.
