2001 Two Hands Ares Barossa Valley Shiraz South Australia

SKU #500261
Red, black-cherry in color. Complex aromas of coffee, chocolate and Asian spice. The palate is mulberry-blackberry with smokey, charcoal overtones. A massive body, with rich concentration and juicy mouthfeel backed by fruit, tannin and extract. Despite its size it remains a balanced, elegant style with the oak playing a supporting role.

JAMES HALLIDAY REVIEW: Medium to full red-purple; the rich and complex bouquet has ripe, but not the least jammy, black fruits with hints of earth and vanilla; an extremely powerful, savoury palate has layers of blackberry fruit with built-in tannins; great length and cohesion; a minimum ten-year proposition. A trendy label where the front (meaningless except for its graphics) is the back, and vice versa.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2001 Shiraz Ares (100% Barossa Valley Shiraz) was previewed last year from barrel, and is even better from bottle. Its stunning nose of subtle new oak interwoven with blackberry liqueur and acacia flowers is followed by a full-bodied, rich, concentrated Shiraz with tremendous power, symmetry, and a deep, thick, long finish. Despite its large size, it is an elegant, tremendously rich, long beauty with at least 10-15 years of aging ahead of it.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Rich, ripe and preternaturally long, with a huge explosion of black cherry, plum and exotic spices up front and the whole range echoing beautifully as the fine tannins wrap up the finish, hitting peppermint, licorice and toasty notes.
A very deep focused black in color, with a lovely aroma that starts with minerals, ash, dark chocolate, exotic spice, tar and smoke. This wine floats gradually across the palate with great weight and then ends with a finish of concentrated tannins that are alive and extremely long.
