Two Hands Brave Faces Barossa Valley 2012

Jeffery Lindenmuth - April 2014

A decadent and lavish red—Grenache, Mataro, and Shiraz—featuring a core of ripe, molten red fruit, including flavors of kirsch and sweet raspberry coulis, laced with white pepper. Plenty of vibrant acidity keeps this slick wine honest, as fine, supple tannins caress the palate through the long finish.
