James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Deep, bright colour; dark and concentrated blackberry and licorice bouquet, showing considerable restraint compared to previous editions; vibrant, juicy and focused, pulling back from sheer power with real grace and verve; very long to conclude, and worthy of time in the cellar.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Dense, impenetrable colour; a massive wine in every respect, '08 magnifying the Two Hands chosen style; luscious black fruits, oak and alcohol chase each other around the glass. A deliberate policy to give all but Sophie's Garden the same points: while characters differ, the quality is very similar.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Pure Barossa mocha, blackberry and fruitcake, blended with a generous serve of toasty oak; thick and unctuous on entry, the quite gravelly tannin refocuses the wine, to conclude with more toast and ample levels of sweet fruit.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
More opulent and fleshy than Gnarly Dudes, leaving no corner of the mouth untouched; the fruit, oak and tannins carry the alcohol

Angus Hughson (2006 Vintage) says
Bella's Garden always is one of the picks from the Two Hands range and the 2006 vintage is no different. As soon as you pour it into a glass, the colour just stands out with tremendous depth, vinosity and intensity. And the bouquet follows suit with rich and fleshy blackberry, kirsch and cassis fruit. In the mouth the wine is intense and well-focussed with great purity of fruit and commendable structure. This is made for all the hedonists out there.
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Rich, fleshy fruit in abundance, but not the least jammy; indeed, borders on outright elegance; good balance and structure.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Very strong, deep, purple-red; a full-bodied, luscious array of blackberry, plum and licorice; supple, ripe tannins. Just copes with the alcohol.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Very ripe dark fruits; generous mouthfeel; good tannin structure.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Saturated but supple plum and blackberry fruit; while not over-extracted, in the ultra full-bodied Battlestar Galactica style.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Bright, full red-purple; ripe blackberry and plum fruit on the bouquet is followed by a palate with abundant weight and concentration, the slightly gamey undertones providing a subject for discussion. Like the Bad Impersonator, 14.5° alcohol.
