D'Arenberg 2016 The Dead Arm Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

Cellar Selection

Chester Osborn and his team's red wines are rarely shy creatures, and this, one of the brand's most famed wines, is no exception. Opening with a dense thicket of brambly berries imbued with Middle Eastern spices and mocha-like oak characters, this leads to a palate that's rich and round with a bit of heat from the alcohol. The tangy fruit and chiseled, taut tannins, however, save the day. This is a monster of a wine that shouldn't be touched anytime soon. Drink 2025–2035. Christina Pickard
