    Talking of substantial, this 2015 version of The Dead Arm Shiraz certainly is that. It has the might, it has the power, it's never had the pleasure of nuance but then the style and indeed target market isn't going to miss it. This is a red wine of brute, brooding power. It's a horse-hearted wine, blackberry and saltbush, clove and gunnmetal flavours coursing through its veins. It tastes sweet, stewed and exaggerated but it feels neat, balanced and intentional. The back half of the wine is all tight sheets of tannin, studded with saltbush and related iodine. Oak? Cedary, but sunk deep into the wine. It's as hard a wine to fault as it is to love; it lacks charm but is both immaculate and concentrated. Drink: 2020-2030+. Score - 93+. (Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au, June 18, 2018)
