D'Arenberg 2002 The Dead Arm Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

Impresses the hell out of you on the first look—it offers controlled, pretty plum and berry fruit on the palate, with black pepper, cassis and graham cracker aromas. Overexamine it, though, and you start to find things that you wish were different (for me, it wants more intensity midpalate), but that doesn't mean that this isn't delicious. Why not just sit back and enjoy the mocha-laden finish, and leave analysis to another day?
