2003Branson Coach House Greenock Barossa Valley Rare Single Vineyard Coach House Block Estate Grown VinifiedMatured BottledShiraz R484.993  96 WS
This single-vineyard bottling from the makers of Two Hands is a huge wine that doesn't feel as big as it is, glowing at the center with blueberry, purple plum and currant fruit, shaded on the edges with sweet spices, sage and a touch of creamy oak, all of it expanding on the finish against ultrafine tannins. The aftertaste lingers for days. Best from 2007 through 2020. Yes, this wine is better than their celestial 2002! Elegance, richness, power, layers of flavor, this one has it all. Parker notes, "The fabulous, inky/purple-hued 2003 Shiraz Coach House only carries 14.5% alcohol (in the land of 15% full-throttle Shiraz). It offers a huge nose of blackberry and cassis liqueur, plums, figs, barbecue smoke, and lead pencil shavings. A wine of great intensity, enormous concentration, moderately high tannin, and a blockbuster finish, it needs 2-3 more years of bottle age, and it should last for 10-20+ years. This is an impressive successor to Branson Coach House’s equally exciting 2002." From the Wine Spectator, "This is a huge wine that doesn't feel as big as it is, glowing at the center with blueberry, purple plum and currant fruit, shaded on the edges with sweet spices, sage and a touch of creamy oak, all of it expanding on the finish against ultrafine tannins. The aftertaste lingers for days. Best from 2007 through 2020. 750 cases made."

Rich yet sleek and concentrated, with tiers of ripe plum, wild berry and black cherry. Shows a touch of spice, sandalwood and nutmeg. The long, detailed aftertaste that keeps introducing new flavors. Best from 2006 through 2014. 8,800 cases made. JL
2001Cayuse Vineyards Cailloux VineyardSyrah L2481  93 WS
WS: Rich, ripe and supple, but it comes off as subtle, with its layers of ripe cherry and blackberry weaving through smoky, meaty notes (almost like bacon) and hinting at floral notes on the long, refined finish. Drink now through 2011. 496 cases made. (HS) RP: The medium to dark ruby/purple-colored 2001 Syrah Cailloux Vineyard reveals saddle leather, black raspberry and spice aromas. Its medium-bodied cassis, raspberry and blackberry-flavored personality is juicy, lush, full of fruit, and finishes on loads of ripe tannin as well as smoky bacon flavors. Projected maturity: now-2009.

2001Concha Y Toro Don MelchorCabernet L543.993  95 WS
Gorgeous nose of black currant preserves and freshly roasted coffee, with a powerful yet very silky palate of cassis, plum, blackberry, loam, mineral and dark chocolate flavors that glide through a superlong finish. Don't be deceived by its seeming accessibility though--there's some iron-clad structure underneath for the long haul as well. Drink now through 2012. 13,500 cases made. (JM)

Tanzer:92+? 'Rather bound-up nose suggests blackberry, creme de cassis and bitter chocolate. Juicy and intensely flavored, conveying an impression of strong extract and solid underlying structure. The kirsch flavor is nicely lifted by a floral element.'

2002Lagier Meredith Mount VeederSyrah R850.991  93 WS, 92 RP
Wine Spectator: This noteworthy Syrah combines ripe, zesty wild berry, blackberry, white pepper and herbs with beef, cherry, plum and nutmeg scents that are both rich and intense yet delicately balanced, ending with a mix of fleshy suppleness and ripe, integrated tannins. Best from 2006 through 2012. Robert Parker: This poised, elegant Syrah reveals subtle but intense aromas of camphor, blackberries, cassis, and earthy forest floor. It builds incrementally, exhibiting good richness, power, purity, and integration of wood, acidity, alcohol, and tannin. An impressively endowed, authoritatively flavored, noble expression of Syrah with subtle nuances, it should be consumed over the next 5-7 years. I also admired the wording on the back label ... “protected from too much winemaking.”

Pretty, with plum and berry character and just a hint of spice. Medium- to full-bodied, with medium tannins and a fruity finish. Delicious. Much better than the 1998. Best after 2006. 20,000 cases made. (JS)
2003Two Hands Angel's ShareShiraz L4/L723.992  92 WS
Not a huge mouthful, but it unfolds its flavors and builds up intensity as the blackberry, plum, cedar and floral pepper flavors persist onto the long, generous finish. Best from 2007 through 2015. 2,200 cases imported. (HS)

CC, WSC 25.00, LM 24.99, ATW 24.99, Enjoyed at Ross Lake Resort. Spicey, full bodied, very nice. Gifted one to Peggy Fine for her new job and fund drive leadership.
2003Two Hands Bella's GardenShiraz L759.751  94 WS
Powerful. Densely packed and oozing rich cherry, blackberry, licorice, pepper and exotic spice flavors, showing gorgeous balance and even elegance as the flavors persist in a lovely chorus. Has strength and grace, and no intrusive oak. Should last a while. Best from 2007 through 2020. 1,200 cases imported. (HS)
WSC, CC - 60.99, Are there 1 or 2?, L7? Had at Bob's 50th. Nice berry flavor but a tad young as it was a little hot from the alcohol.
2003Two Hands Lily's GardenShiraz L759.991  93 WS
Raw, powerful and muscular, with vivid, sharply etched blackberry, black cherry and peppery spice aromas and flavors, persisting impressively on the finish, veering toward tart. Needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2007 through 2015. 1,700 cases imported. (HS)
MTW, Elise 2005 Christmas from ESQ. Nice at Ross Lake 2006.
2003Two Hands Max's GardenShiraz L759.751  92 WS
This gorgeous blast of lively raspberry, cherry and plum soars over the palate on a jet stream of vibrant acidity that carries through to a long and satisfying end. Needs food to balance the acidity, but it's a zinger. Drink now through 2012. 600 cases imported. (HS)
2003Two Hands Shovel BlancMerlot/Cabernet Franc L739.751   
2003Two Hands Sophie's GardenShiraz L759.751  91 WS
Dark, ripe and plush in texture, with a strong minty character that runs through the vivid blackberry and roasted plum at the center, persisting on the spicy, mildly cedary finish. Tannins need to settle down. Best from 2006 through 2012. 280 cases
2003Two Hands The Lost Highway Project: Stella's GardenShiraz R457.991  89 WS
Firm, generous with its ripe cherry, plum, herb and licorice flavors, finishing with a wee touch of bitterness against sweet fruit. Best from 2006 through 2010. 600 cases made. (HS)
