The 2009 Two Hands Bella's Garden Shiraz, aged in French Oak for 18 months, was ranked #35 on the 2011 Wine Spectator Top 100 wines. It is a medium bodied, integrated to aged wine, with intense aromas of black currant, blackberry, bilberry, smoke, violets, clove and pronounced black pepper. It has a focused structure with refined tannins (decant for 30-60 min) and a long finish. This wine should be enjoyed by itself in a special company; drink now or hold for another 10 years. My impression: DIVINE, 93 pts - definitely a recommended buy. Tasted Sept/12.

Very aromatic herbal, vegetal, licorice and pepper notes. Full-bodied palate offers black pepper, black currants, licorice and violet. Refined tannins present on a well-balanced and very long finishing wine. Gorgeous! Tasted Sept/2012.
