2005 Two Hands Ares Barossa Valley Shiraz South Australia

SKU #500264
Attractive aromas of dark red and black fruits such as cherry, dried fig and satsuma plum. The fruit characters are complimented by notes of spice, mocha, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate and cedar. The 2005 Ares remains true to style with great concentration and density balanced by elegance and restraint. Remaining perfectly balanced, the tannins are silky and refined, the mid palate dense and rich.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2005 Shiraz “Ares” is a glass-coating opaque purple. The nose delivers tar, scorched earth, saddle leather, blueberry, and a hint of chocolate. Opulent, layered, and intensely flavored, it has excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity and enough hidden structure to evolve for up to a decade. Drink this tasty Shiraz through 2025.
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Inky violet. Outrageously scented nose combines pungent floral, spice and mineral tones with kirsch, blackcurrant and blueberry aromas. Surprisingly zesty in the mouth, with vibrant red, black and blue fruit flavors sharpened by peppery minerality and sweetened by hints of floral pastille and mocha. There's energy and cut here that reminded me of cabernet more than shiraz. The incisive finish features a dark berry skin tone and a bright jolt of cracked pepper. Can you call it a finish when it doesn't stop? Twelftree says that his goal here was to make a 15-to-20-year wine.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: A majestic wine that's tremendously aromatic and dense in texture, but amazingly refined. Delineates its ripe plum, blueberry and currant flavors with precision, shading the fruit with nuances of coffee and dark chocolate, hinting at smoke and licorice as the finish laps at the palate like the shore of a deep lake.
2005 produced wines of stellar power and concentration whilst remaining perfectly balanced. The 2005 Ares is no exception. Black to the core in color. Very complex amalgam of aromas such as; licorice, tar, earth, cedar chocolate and the blackest of fruits such as boysenberry, blackberry and fresh prunes. Incredibly viscous and concentrated with excellent poise and balance for such a powerful wine, the acid and tannins working in perfect harmony. The tannins are integrated throughout and will help the wine mature gracefully.
