Wine Spectator ~ "Plush in texture, lavishly oaked and resonant with gorgeous black cherry, plum and licorice flavors that glide smoothly over polished tannins and linger impressively on the long, generous finish. Defines power with finesse. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases made."
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate ~ "...a brooding bouquet of blue and black fruits, Asian spices, and toasty oak..... this layered, pleasure-bent wine can be enjoyed now but will evolve for several more years. It should provide pleasure through 2021....Two Hands is a negociant operation run impeccably by Michael Twelftree. It reflects the best that can be sourced from all over South Australia."
"The nose is a pleasant mix of chocolate, dark fruits and spice. The attack is supple, round and now fully mature plum jam, licorice and more baking spices ... the balanced is perfect. Served with braised lamb dishes or old soft cheeses for best results." Anthony Gismondi
