D'Arenberg 2012 Dead Arm Shiraz
A big blockbuster of a wine. Totally opaque colour with purple crimson hue. Aroma of liquorice allsorts, spice, blackpepper and vanilla with just a hint of marzipan. The palate is tight, full bodied, and yet to evolve. Flavours of vanilla, plum and liquorice. Firmish but balanced tannins. Long aftertaste of vanilla, plum and spice.
