Winemaker Notes

Sexy Beast, with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, is a lovely deep purple color. This wine springs forth on a bouquet of lavender, creosote, warm plums, cranberries and hot oil, a lovely minty floral Asian spice follows. The palate is where this wine really shines as it bursts forth with a build, detail and density rarely seen from a McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon. There are very intelligent tannins at play here and they hold the varietal character right to the end, the fruit fits so beautifully into the structure.

Critical Acclaim

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Ripe and supple, offering a velvety mouthful of blueberry, dark plum and currant flavors, shaded with hints of smoky meat and roasted herbs. Finishes with intensity.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

Very deep purple-black in color, the 2010 Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon is profoundly scented of creme de cassis, cloves and cedar with underlying nuances of baker's chocolate, mint and pencil lead. Very full bodied and packed with taut, dense cassis flavor, it has a solid foundation of firm grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long and clean. Still very young and tight, consider drinking it 2013 to 2019+.
Rating: 91+

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby. Blackcurrant and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of anise, black tea and pipe tobacco. Smooth and sweet in the mouth, with concentrated dark berry and bitter cherry flavors showing very good clarity. Closes firm and bright, with supple tannins giving shape to the sappy finish.

Two Hands
Two Hands Wines was founded in 1999 by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz. Their aim was, and still is, to produce the best possible wines from prized Shiraz growng regions throughout Australia. "Quality without compromise" is a core value that drives all decisions from fruit and oak selection to packaging and promotion. Winemaker Matt Wenk has been with Two Hands since 2002 and, together with Michael Twelftree, oversees every aspect of the winemaking process. Their flagship Shiraz, Ares, represents the very best parcels in each vintage and is selected through an intense barrel classification process. This blend of Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale Shiraz displays the incredible depth of flavor and balance that are hallmarks of this wine.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

View More

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
