Wine Review: This medium purple colored Shiraz from Two Hands opens with a fragrant boysenberry and pencil lead bouquet with a hint of acai berry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, smooth, and savory. The flavor profile is a concentrated boysenberry and juicy black plum blend with notes of cinnamon, cedar and craisin. We also detected hints of nutmeg and toffee. The finish is dry, and its fruity flavors linger and last for a very long time. The Tasting Panel would pair this tasty Shiraz with duck confit. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Color: Deep, dark red with a black core and purple hue.
Aroma: Deep set aromas of blackberry, bramble, black pepper, dried flower, Indian ink, and baking spices.
Taste: The intensity and vibrancy of this wine hits you with a wall of flavor. This Shiraz ratchets up a gear as it runs the length of the palate and caress just like a Shiraz should. An elegant wine of refined beauty and power that tightens up and commands authority. Sheer elegance seeps through the palate. The tannins start early and build momentum drawing the wine through to an extremely long and detailed finish. Notes of blackberry are prominent where complexing notes of baking spice, florals, and black pepper add light and shade.
