2011 Dead Arm Shiraz, d´Arenberg

Sometimes you just have to indulge yourself in a upfront, juicy, in-your-face kind of wine. And the Dead Arme rellay fit the bill. The 2008 tasted here.

2011 Dead Arm Shiraz, d´Arenberg
A big, spicy, warm but yet seedy nose with notes of ripe blackberries, blueberry pie scents, sweet tobacco and shoe polish. A bit of VA, in a nice way. Very likable if you are in to these kind of wines - as I am from time to time, again and again...
The taste is warm, ripe, focused and intense with notes of dark cherries, liquorice, chewing tobacco and some green peppers at the end. Big and bold, but it carries a cooler character than some previous vintages. Me like!
