Press: Samantha’s A Cool-Climate Winner In The Chicago Tribune

Writing in the Chicago Tribune, Bill St. John says, “Cool-climate syrah benefits from a longer growing season (hence, the slow ripening of a red wine’s goodies) while retaining the soul of acidity and nuance.” Samantha’s made his fine list of picks:

2008 Two Hands Shiraz Samantha’s Garden Clare Valley Australia:┬áSuper-scented of red fruits and blueberry, hinting at mint and cedar (what the Aussies call “lift”); wonderful concentration deftly turned out, with can’t-see-’em tannins and a real mouthful of flavor; amazing combo of power and grace.
