Two Hands Ares Barossa Valley 2004
Amazing depth almost impenetrable purple black in colour. The nose is still very tight and requires plenty of air. After a while it starts to reveal layers of broody black fruit - blood plum and blackberry laced with tar, coffee and dark roasted spices. The palate offers thick generous layers of complex fruit balanced by the well integrated oak and fruit tannin. This is a really exciting ride that hits all the right notes; the 2004 will age for a very long time with a great deal of dignity.
External Reviews for Two Hands Ares Barossa Valley
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.
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.
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. Shiraz. Best from 2010 through 2020.
Rich and generous with its silky tannins and expressive black cherry, blackberry, huckleberry and meaty spice notes that flit through the long, round, oak-scented finish. Has great vibrancy and detail, and the finish lingers for days. Shiraz. Drink now through 2020.
