WA 90 AG 89 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2011 Hand Over Fist checks in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 38% Grenache and 12% Mourvedre that spent 20 months in 20% new French oak. Showing a slightly serious feel, with fantastic purity, medium to full-bodied richness and plenty of focus and precision, it gives up notions of smoke, cedar, tobacco leaf and white pepper that’s intermixed with plenty of darker-styled fruits. It will be better in another year, and drink nicely through 2021.
According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Hand over Fist, a Syrah/Grenache/Mourvèdre blend, offers plenty of near-term appeal. Black cherry, plum, spice, sweet herbs and tobacco all flesh out in a juicy, inviting wine to drink now and over the next 2-3 years. 15.5% ABV.
