Color: Deep dark red. Aroma: A mélange of fruits explode on the nose; bright red berries, spiced plums and chocolate coupled with subtle hints of fresh flowers and cedary oak. Palate: Pure and focused with lively black berries, black pepper and bitter chocolate. Lovely bright acids and fine yet tight tannins provide the ideal framework to a palate that is both long and pure. This wine has the intensity and power without ever feeling rich or heavy. A great Gnarly Dudes from an equally great 2012 Barossa vintage.

James Halliday93 points This is undeniably medium to full-bodied, but does not overwhelm you with the Parkeresque gobfuls of fruit; here tannins replace the bitter chocolate to provide a savoury/earthy flourish to a very good wine. James Halliday's Wine Companion Magazine, January 2014 91 points From a top vintage, this is one of Two Hands' best-value reds. It's deep red-purple, rich and blackberry scented, succulently fruit-sweet, with supportive oak and soft tannins, finishing with length and authority. Drink now to 2027.

Wine SpectatorDark and brooding, with blackberry, cherry and gentle spice flavors unfolding on the smooth, meaty frame. The finish persists against velvety tannins. Drink now through 2020. 15,000 cases made.
