The Lucky Country

The Lucky Country, 2003 Barossa Valley 55% Shiraz 45% Cabernet ($17) -- Australia. This is a "second label" from Two Hands although the bottle says that they are selected barrel samples. This wine has a big fruit nose and smooth flavors and a good finish. It is a touch raw and should smooth out with age, but is a good value from a very good producer. From the back label:

"We always awake to a beautiful day in Australia. We have a fun filled culture of natural beauty, color and space backed by a lovely clean environment. Enjoy this red wine, a true expression of the lucky country."
