The 2000 The Dead Arm Shiraz is an amazing effort for this "lighter" vintage. More evolved than the 1999 most readers will find it more enjoyable to drink now and over the next 12-15 years. With great purity fabulous concentration remarkable unctuosity sweet tannin low acidity and layers of blackberry and cassis fruit that saturate the palate this brilliant wine actually sells for a song considering the tiny crop yields and ancient vines from which it is made. Anticipated maturity: now-2016.

This wine gets its name from a vine fungus that kills off part of the vine. The vine gets pruned back which leads to small berries and low yields; this concentrates the intense fleshy blue-black fruit flavors. There is a rich juicy feel to the wine which has firm but well-integrated tannins.
