Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

There's a lot of concentration here, but it is pretty approachable, in general. It's ripe, but not overripe (lots of juiciness to the fruit) and it incorporates its components (tannin, acid, alcohol) really well.
The colour is deep ruby.
Aromas of cassis, currant, clove, incense, apple skin, and graphite.
Approachable upfront fruit. On the palate it is still super juicy. It's absolutely not firm or intense. Full on, but easy to enjoy. Not really a tremendous amount of spice to them. Chocolate and charcoal.
Put this with lamb kabobs, with lots of mushrooms.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Rich dark fruit on the nose with a lovely unfolding of more complex layers and flavors on the palate - blackberry, plum, coconut, cassis, and mint - generous and lingering dark fruit finish.

Natalie's Review

Two Hands Lily's Garden Shiraz 2015, Mclaren Vale, South Australia, Australia: A full-bodied, concentrated and complex Australian red wine with rich black fruit flavours and made from the country's classic Shiraz grape. This winery has a long history in winemaking. This wine unfolds on the palate with terrific replays of dark fruit and spice. Long finish. Decant 2 hours. Pair with roast beef.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
