95 points "Pepper, clove and plum flavors weave through dense dark cherry and roasted plum fruit, melding together smoothly on the complex and expansive finish. A big wine with depth and harmony. Best from 2013 through 2020. Two Hands Winery -- Notes of cherries plus chocolate, cedar, spice and scorched earth. Very seductive. Palate: Dense plums explode onto the palate with spice, subtle chocolate and tar. The fine tannin backbone rolls on and on from the mid palate, surrounded by fresh juiciness, dark fruit and subtle oak.De-stemmed, crushed and fermented in five, seven and ten tonne open top fermenters with three regular pump overs daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Average time 'on skins' was 16 days, before the dry free run was drained to tank and the pressings combined. After 24 hours the wine was then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel, then racked off lees, tidied up and returned to oak. Minimal fining and unfiltered prior to bottling. " Best 2013-2020

Best from 2013 through 2020." 95 Points Wine Spectator "Glass-staining purple. Intense aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, incense and violets. Lush, palate-coating blueberry and cassis flavors show both power and verve, with peppery spices adding bite. Finishes sweet, floral and very long, with impressive precision." 93 Points International Wine Cellar" Best 2013-2020
