Wine Review: This is a really good food friendly wine from Australia. It is opaque purple in color and has a bouquet of black raspberry, leather and eucalyptus. This big and complex wine is full bodied, and well balanced with juicy acidity. Flavors of ripe blackberry, spicy pomegranate, vanilla oak and coffee fill your mouth and linger in the finish with soft tannins and cherry and black pepper notes. Enjoy a big bowl of beef chili with a glass of this. - Mark.

This collaboration between Jacobs Creek and Ehren Jordan hit the mark on their first try with the 2013 Two Lands Shiraz and at this price point it is a great buy. This Shiraz is full bodied and brick red in color. The weighty pleasing bouquet includes blackberry, plum, oak, light eucalyptus and tobacco. I especially enjoyed the palate and finish on this Aussie Shiraz. The earthy, juicy, blackberry flavors were quite pleasing and was slightly dry and spicy with black pepper and herbal notes. The balanced tannins give this Shiraz a nice palate presence. The slight dryness carries through to the nice dry extended finish. I would have this Two Lands Shiraz with marinated steak tips with Gorgonzola cheese. - Joe (4/2016 - Score 89)

Winemaker Notes: Color: Deep purple Bouquet: Ripe plum and blackberry with a hint of prune and dried fruits Palate: A full-bodied, flavorful Shiraz showing ripe red berry fruits and a generous prolonged finish Cellaring Potential: Excellent drinking now, and will continue to evolve over the next five to ten years Serving Suggestion: Slow cooked sticky beef short ribs
