2001 d'Arenberg Shiraz The Dead Arm  (McLaren Vale) 80

This was a bucket of jammy berries, vanilla and cooked sugar. With the texture of motor oil, heat like rocket fuel and flavors of a jammy berry pie, one sip was two sips too much. Perhaps as a dessert sauce, poured over vanilla ice cream, this would work. But as a wine, it was not my style. The wine was poured double blind by one of my friends thinking I would like it, if I did not know what it was. He was wrong. While I can see why some people would like this wine, (Which is why it scored 80) I am positive the wine and I will both be better off if we do not meet again. 80 Points
