Michael Twelftree had an agenda. The owner of Two Hands Wines, which in only a decade has established itself as one of Australia's most compelling wineries, dug into his cellar in Barossa Valley to present a formidable tasting dinner in Los Angeles.

The wines showed great. Here are my notes on the nine Ares Shiraz as well as a handful of other Two Hands cuvées.
