Shiraz 2011

2Up

Named for a popular Australian game of chance, 2 up is created by Kevin and Helen O'Brien, producers of the highly acclaimed Kangarilla Road. The wine is an elegant, intense and exceptional quality Shiraz that is hand-crafted from a blend of grapes carefully selected by Kevin from highly prized local vineyards. According to Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate, 2 up represents "the type of wine value that simply can't be found in California."

Tasting Notes

Vibrant Crimson in color with purple hues and aromas of rich dark berryfruits with hints of plum, dark cherry and integrated oak. Lifted berries with spicy stewed plums and dark cherries on the palate with a long lingering finish reflecting dark berry fruits and fine tannins.
