Two Hands Sophie's Garden Shiraz signed - RP 91
The elegant 2001 Shiraz Sophie's Garden was aged in American oak, of which 50% was new. Coming from Padthaway, it appears tighter, more structured, and more European-styled than its siblings. Abundant quantities of black currant and blackberry fruit, licorice, spice, and a hint of mint are followed by a tightly-knit, full-bodied, pure, long Shiraz.
Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2004 - RP 94
Showing brilliantly, with a deep, rich and layered profile, the straight 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape has gorgeous black cherry, earth, underbrush and background meatiness that gives way to a full-bodied, concentrated and pure feel on the palate.
Cos D'Estournel Saint-Estephe 1995 - RP 95
A wine of extraordinary intensity and accessibility, the 1995 Cos D'Estournel is a sexy, hedonistic offering. Opulent, with forward aromatics (gobs of black fruits intermixed with toasty pain grille scents and a boatload of spice), this terrific Cos possesses remarkable intensity, full body, and layers of jammy fruit nicely framed by the wine's new oak.
