Wine Spectator | Rating: 89Firm, with flavors that veer off toward earthy but retain a refulgent core of black cherry, pepper and herbal notes that linger impressively.Drink Dates: 2006-2010Author: Harvey Steiman
Wine Advocate | Rating: 86The tank-fermented and aged 2004 Grenache Yesterday's Hero (100% Grenache) exhibits a medium ruby color along with pleasant raspberry and kirsch characteristics, but it is somewhat tart as well as narrowly constructed in the mouth. It is a competent, Australian equivalent of a low-level French Cotes du Rhone.Author: Robert Parker
The "two hands" are Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz, who formed the company in 1999 with the clear objective of making the best possible Shiraz-based wines from prized regions within Australia. In 2000 they started with just 17 tons of fruit from the McLaren Vale and Padthaway wine regions. From the beginning the wines were very well received at home and abroad, with a healthy stream of reviews, culminating in 2004 with Robert Parker pronouncing Two Hands as "the finest negociant operation south of the equator."
