The Garden Series Wines in 140 Characters or Fewer

winedudeIt’s no great revelation that when it comes to wine commentary and criticism, the times they are a changin’, with more voices and more dialog. Joe Roberts has been at the forefront of this shift with a fresh and energetic approach that reflects his moniker, 1WineDude, but doesn’t skimp on the nuts-and-bolts of reporting and research.

Joe recently tasted and tweeted reviews of the Garden Series, offering up his unique and provocative takes on these six quintessentially Two Hands wines:

  • 2010 Two Hands Max’s Garden Shiraz (Heathcote): For those who jam on tart black cherry jam, but also have minerality as their jam. $60 A-
  • 2010 Two Hands Harry & Edward’s Garden Shiraz (Langhorne Creek): Decadent as a Death By Licorice (& huge, sweet fruit) dessert offering $60 B+
  • 2010 Two Hands Sophie’s Garden Shiraz (Padthaway): A bear hug from a eucalyptus Ent, after he’s devoured huge handfuls of blackberries. $60 B+
  • 2010 Two Hands Samantha’s Garden Shiraz (Clare Valley): If big Aussie Shiraz can be called classic, here’s a standard-bearer candidate. $60 A-
  • 2010 Two Hands Lilly’s Garden Shiraz (McLaren Vale): Don’t say she never gave you anything, ’cause the black cherries flow non-stop. $60 B+
  • 2010 Two Hands Bella’s Garden Shiraz (Barossa Valley): The lady likes to eat meat. And wear silk. And she likes it a little hot, too. $60 A-

If find yourself struggling to squeeze these letter grades into a 100-point mindset, Joe says that “B- to B+” scores are equivalent to 85 to 92 point scores, while “A- to A+” would be in the 93-100 range. (You can read more about how Joe reviews wines here.)
