Two Hands Yesterday's Hero 2005
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley|
Light and lithe, with a polished texture balanced by crisp acidity. Shows lots of pretty raspberry and spice flavors that linger impressively.
The 2005 Grenache Yesterday's Hero was aged in neutral French and American oak. It exhibits a medium dark ruby color, lovely raspberry and strawberry fruit, good body, and a southern Rhone-like typicity. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
A forward, fruit-driven Grenache that seems destined for early consumption, Yesterday's Hero features scents of dust-covered, sun-warmed cherries and hints of carob and leather. The flavors are bright and bouncy-cherry and vanilla-with a creamy texture and a tart, fresh finish. It's easy to like and easy to drink.
