Fermented with close to 30% whole cluster and aged for 13 months in older French hogsheads, the 2009 Two Hands Grenache Aerope has intense, savory aromatics of ground pepper, cocoa powder, and leather that are rounded out by mainly ripe red berry and kirsch like notes. Despite the savory, dry aromatic profile, this explodes on the palate with a juicy burst of fruit, solid texture, good acidity, and a clean, long finish. While this should have a decade or longer of prime drinking, I don’t see any reason to hold off either.

Fragrant and ripe, with potent raspberry preserve, cherry-vanilla and rose pastille aromas and a hint of Asian spices. Vibrant, deeply concentrated red berry and cherry flavors display impressive lift and drive. This has lovely vivacity for such a rich wine (15.4% alcohol), finishing with excellent clarity and spicy thrust. -- Josh Raynolds

Wine Spectator, July 2012
Supple, polished and vibrant, with black cherry and dried strawberry flavors, hinting at mint, green olive and black tea as the finish lingers enticingly against refined tannins. Grenache. Drink now through 2020. –HS
