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!
