Product Description

Bacchus heard this the other day, and now responds: “OK Bacchus, what do you got that will stain my teeth for a week?”

 

Enter the 2015 Two Hands Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon from McLaren Vale, Australia.

 

With our success (sold out) of the last Aussie red, we felt very comfortable with this week’s selection. Two Hands has always been on our radar, we have carried various varietals from the winery in the past. We sometimes stop short at consistently carrying it because of pricing. Indeed, Two Hands demands that only their finest efforts get shipped, and that means very expensive vintages. It also means you can count on this label to back up what it promises to deliver.

 

The 2015 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, barrel selected, and limited to just under 5000 cases.

 

Like many wineries in Australia, Two Hands is whimsical enterprise, where core mission is always, “make the best wine and let’s have fun doing it.” The winery was created by “two guys” at a cocktail party coming together and creating a premium brand in a wine area that delivers quality fruit.

 

Here is what we have always encountered with Two Hands: wines of deepest hue, crazy aromatics, from juniper to blueberries to loamy earth to cedar. It is a mouthful and indeed a teeth stainer.

 

Some people may be put off by this wine – it is 100% Cab, so the tannic structure is well intact, the density might be too much a wallop to the palate. However, it is a wine to fall in love with at first sip. The wine is unconditionally approachable. No need to prepare special food, special occasion or special operating procedures – just drink it.

 

We got to open a bottle this week, and we think we are getting it in its youthful stage: That crazy aroma is there, delivering layers of deep blue and black fruits, like the ripe blackberries available now, some spice if you let it warm up and, whoa, coffee and mocha?

 

We weren’t the only ones to like it, our friends in the wine review section:

Wine Spectator: “Impressive, with a plush, seductive and succulent body, offering sink-your-teeth-into-them flavors of black cherry, blackberry and plum, accented by details of dark chocolate, rose petal and savory. Drink now through 2025.” 93 Points

 

Wine Advocate: “The 2015 Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon is redolent of crème de cassis, black forest cake and menthol with a waft of cigar boxes. Full-bodied, concentrated and full-on “sexy,” as the name suggests, I like the firm, ripe tannins in the mouth that support the generous fruit very nicely through the long finish.” 90 Points
