2014 Two Hands Gnarly Dudes Shiraz
"Gnarly Dudes is named for the gnarly old Shiraz vines that year after year grow a crop of beautiful fruit that is tamed and put in bottle. The “Dude” from the Cohen Brother’s movie The Big Lebowski was also an inspiration.
Deep dark red, with flecks of magenta at the meniscus. Dark and alluring with notes of blackberries, bramble, roast meats, lavender and coal dust. Lovely density and weight, blackberry and plum cascade across the palate with notes of roast meats, pipe smoke and cedar playing a supporting role. A lovely vein of Barossa black pepper and spice runs the length of the palate." - Importer
