Completely outclassed by its company. A little overripe and medicinal for my tastes.

I could not resist but pull out this big Shiraz to pair with the thick cut of prime New York strip. To me the pairing is as good as it gets. Ripe, but the 2014 vintage seems to have a more vivid acidity. The flavors just hit you like gentle warm gulf waves. I will try to get my hands off my remaining bottles for a while.

Nose of blackberry, fig, dark spice, black tea, and hint of violet and rusty iron. The palate is ripe, slightly raisiny, but with a streaking round acidity that adds tension and balance. Mellow tannins leading to a long bitter sweet finish. Probably the most widely available bottling from the garden series, the Bella always delivers.

Clean across the tongue, with a slight bitter end that adds interest.

Well rounded and approachable, you can’t really go wrong with the Two Hands garden series. Bellas garden is a personal favourite, this is my third vintage. Good nose of dark fruit, strawberries, leather and tar. Visually it’s dark and rich but the palate is slightly lighter than expected with good fruit, spice and liquorice. The finish is unexpected with a slight high tangy, cranberry note which lingers nicely without being acidic. This is drinking nicely.

Love this wine. The black licorice, pencil shavings/graphite, dense blackberries, plums, and baking spices, the suave, supple tannins. All of it. Delicious.

Drinking like a champ right out of the chute. Dense berries and pencil shavings galore.

Really great stuff. Would like a bit more spice/complexity.

Big, inky dark Syrah that got bigger with time.

Long day. This is better, but as good as I was hoping.
