2015 Two Hands ARES
Region: Barossa Valley, South Australia
96 Points Robert Parker
A blend of fruit from three historic vineyards in three separate parts of Barossa, the 2015 Ares Shiraz is a top-flight effort. Loaded with vanilla and red currants on the nose, it's a full-bodied, rich, velvety wine, perhaps a bit open-knit for truly long-term cellaring but flashy and attractive now and over the next decade or so. Fine notes of baking spices bring complexity to the red fruits on the long, crisp finish.
