Wine Review: 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

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 Serving Suggestion: Slow cooked sticky beef short ribs
