Deep red with a black core. The bouquet is classic McLaren Vale showing notes of warm plums, blueberries, mulberry, mocha and subtle hints of coconut husk. Bold, rich and round. Crammed full of plummy fruit spice and Christmas cake. Finishes round, soft and cuddly yet very seductive. This wine is fun to drink now and will age well up to 10 years.
"Dark and dense in color, opening a bit in texture, with grippy tannins wound around a solid core of blackberry and red plum flavors, lingering on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2020."
"Deep ruby. Smoky, spice-accented dark berry and cola aromas are complemented by an intense floral quality. Round and fleshy on the palate, offering sweet blueberry and cassis flavors and a bracing jolt of acidity to add lift. Closes with very good energy and focus, leaving spicecake and violet pastille notes behind."

There is alluring brightness here, the red-fruited 2012 Two Hands Angels' Share Shiraz shows fine and controlled ripeness in the nose and on the palate. Long and active in the finish. This is a big wine at 15.2% alcohol, but it doesn't show it.
