Color: Black to the core. Aroma: Very complex amalgam of aromas such as; licorice, tar, earth, cedar, chocolate and the blackest fruits such as Boysenberry, blackberry and fresh prunes. Taste: Incredibly viscous and concentrated with excellent poise and balance for such a powerful wine, the acid and tannins work in perfect harmony. The tannins are integrated throughout and will help the wine mature gracefully.

A majestic wine that's tremendously aromatic and dense in texture, but amazingly refined. Delineates its ripe plum, blueberry and currant flavors with precision, shading the fruit with nuances of coffee and dark chocolate, hinting at smoke and licorice as the finish laps at the palate like the shore of a deep lake. Shiraz. Best from 2010 through 2020. 850 cases made.

The 2005 Shiraz "Ares" is a glass-coating opaque purple. The nose delivers tar, scorched earth, saddle leather, blueberry, and a hint of chocolate. Opulent, layered, and intensely flavored, it has excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity and enough hidden structure to evolve for up to a decade. Drink this tasty Shiraz through 2025.

Two Hands' top-of-the-line Shiraz is a selection of the best barrels, boasting luscious vanilla and cedar from the oak, but also layers of raspberry and blackberry fruit. It's creamy, lush and vanilla-laden but elegant at the same time, with a long, slightly tart finish. Delicious now, but should age well through 2015.
