Two Hands Bella's Garden 2009 Shiraz

Bella's (Beautiful) Garden of the vine is always wonderful!
If there is one wine that always stands out as remarkable, it is Bella's Garden from Two Hands vineyards.

Two Hands Bella's Garden 2009 Shiraz,  $57.79-$,67.99, 95 points, poured black at the core with a brilliant purple/red toward the clear rim and leggy glass wall.
The nose was a bit saline with rich blackberries, cedar, and dried cooking herbs.
The near medium body carried good acidity with layered, grainy, and persistent sweet tannin.
Flavors of truffle, black fruit, licorice, and plum were well balanced and delicious.
Finished long on the trailing palate, mint, eucalyptus, spice, and a bit of heat from the 14.8% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my rack of Australian lamb and even the pecan pie for dessert!

  1. Haven't had an Australian wine in quite some time. Must rectify that.

    1. That's what I said when I realized I hadn't had a Bella's in over a year (A wine lover shouldn't go that long without tasting one of their favorite wines)!
