2006 Mollydooker Shiraz Blue Eyed Boy

I brought this to a party with many non-wine friends. I found this to be typical Australian shiraz, relatively mellow and round but still quite fruity. Others liked it a lot more, probably for the flashy fruit.

Naysayers proven wrong. Ten years and still going strong. Was a bargain when I bought it and it is still holding up well. Big nose, high alchohol, weighty almost syrupy mouthfeel so popular then. Lots of plum - almost pruney on the nose - not from age I suspect, but more from the ripeness when picked. Not super complex, but there is enough going on to hold palate interest. A bygone style that many, including me, have moved away from, but still a nice bottle with some smoked pulled pork slathered with Gates Original BBQ sauce.

Big, jammy, not shy. If you're looking for subtle, don't stop here. But still nicely done & very tasty. Notes of red berries, blueberries & tart raspberries. Medium tannins. Drink now.

16.5% ABV.
It's like they are trying to make a Banyuls without fortification. What is the fucking point?
Nose - blackberry jam, black fruit sugar syrup, clove.
Palate - jam, chocolate, mon cheri, so sweet, chocolate ganache, blueberry sugar syrup, liquid popsicle.

Nasty. Go melt a fucking popsicle, way cheaper.

Nose feels more muted than Blue Eye Boy.
Palate is ripe, sweet, jamy, less spice than Blue Eye, still an absurd wine

Nose is intense, loaded with vanilla, so ripe, so jammy.
Palate is so, so, so sweet, I mean seriously, what the fuck. Juicy, oak/spice overload, jam, macerated fruits, bubblegum.

Ludicrous wine.

Reviewed multiple times (see before for detailed comments) - this is my go-to red for quality regular drinking. Well made, good nose and taste, and readily available in dozen lots in Texas at HEB grocery store. Less available in liquor stores.

2012 Mollydooker Enchanted Path

McLaren Vale Cabernet-Shiraz Blend, Red Blend more

7/24/2015 - Johnfromspokane wrote: 92 points

Impressive wine. Having had the Two Hands Harry and Edwards' Garden Shiraz recently, this one struck me (as it should) as not quite as fleshy, opulent, and velvety, but with more power from the cabernet in the blend. I got more robust tannins, more capsaicin than menthol, a nice blend of red and black fruit, and earthiness. Reflected qualities of excellent Australian cab and shiraz, and finished smooth despite the high alcohol. Honestly, at this quality, the acid, alcohol, and structure could make this wine last another 10-15 years, and probably could pick up several more points in the process. A delight.

Just the right amount of fruit, nice balance on the alcohol, and a silky smooth finish. I enjoyed this with grilled hamburgers and it was great before, during, and after.

2013 Mollydooker Cabernet Sauvignon Gigglepot

South Australia more

7/22/2015 - peterchoy wrote: 90 points

Appearance: Bright and clear, it has deep purple color, with paler rims and legs.
Nose: Clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas of black fruit such as blackcurrant, dark plum, blackberry and bilberry, oak notes of vanilla and cedar, kernel notes of chocolate, herbal notes of mint, pungent spice of licorice. The wine is youthful.
Palate: Dry with medium (+) acidity, the wine has high tannin of ripe and a bit powdery on texture, with high alcohol and full body. It has medium (+) flavors of black fruit such as blackcurrant, blackberry and dark plum, oak notes of vanilla, kernel notes of coffee, dairy notes of cream, sweet spice of clove. The wine has a medium (+) finish.
Conclusion: Good quality Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, showing ripeness that demonstrates how well the variety can ripen in the climate, with an intense nose showing good complexity. Still a bit young, the palate has refreshing acidity though a bit less integrated than some of the other Mollydooker I tasted, but still with concentrated flavors and a fairly long finish. Ready to drink now, it can benefit from further ageing of another 3-5 years.

Still going. Dark in the glass. Mouthful of raspberry and cherry with spice. Long finish but a little hot. Lots of "fruit weight" compared to other Shiraz. Have 2013 & 2014 in cellar, can't wait to taste these in a few years. Agree, good way to end the day.

Beautifully thick and full of flavor. 2/3 Shiraz 1/3 Cab Sav this baby packs a punch and I love it. Not as tasty as its 2012 Carnival of Love, but this is a wonderful blend of two quintessential grapes from a solid winemaker. Cheers!!

7/16/2015 - Keith Levenberg Does not like this wine: 70 points

This was bad, obviously, although not quite bad enough to be fun for its comedic value in a Mystery Science Theatre 3000 fashion, and thus a disappointment on two fronts. It actually comes across varietally identifiable on the entry, with a saline, bacony twist to the fruit which is not quite as slathering as expected; oaked, to be sure, but still at least tasting like oak and not like a creamsicle. Then just when you're saying, "Hmmm..." that's when it gets slathering and goes down the gullet like Manischewitz. It's 16% alcohol which surely contributes to the port-like sweetness but I will admit that wasn't the only thing going on.

Great with food; coffee and cinnamon(coffee cake?). Funny storage story though. Removed this wine from the wine fridge last Summer BECAUSE the reviews clearly stated that this wine has "turned/ gone bad/ was crap" and stored in my houses closet. Recently moved to our very hot garage for these last few weeks, ouch! Decided to try anyway with little hope! It was surprisingly AWESOME! Drink now or cellar properly(1-4 more years)but it is another great Molly Dooker wine.

2009 Mollydooker Verdelho The Violinist

7/15/2015 - peterchoy wrote: 90 points

Appearance: Bright and clear, it has light lemon color, with watery rims and legs.
Nose: Clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas of green fruit of pear, citrus fruit of grapefruit and lemon, autolytic notes of yeast, dairy notes of cream, maturity notes of rubber, oak notes of toast. The wine is developing.
Palate: Dry with medium acidity, the wine has high alcohol and medium body. It has medium (+) flavors of dairy notes of cream, oak notes of butterscotch, citrus fruit of grapefruit, green fruit of pear. The wine has a medium finish.
Conclusion: Good quality Australian Verdelho, with an intense nose showing plenty of complexity, which demonstrates how this varietal can ripen and showing all the different aromas if it is ripe and well-made. The palate is in balance, with good concentration in flavors, reasonable complexity and even though a bit heavy it does not have an overpowering burning feel despite its high alcohol level. With a nice finish, the wine is ready to drink and not supposed for further ageing.

Appearance: Bright and clear, it has deep ruby color, with garnet rims and legs.
Nose: Clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas of black fruit of blackberry, dark cherries and bilberry, sweet spice of clove, oak notes of vanilla and cedar, dairy notes of cream, kernel notes of chocolate and mocha, animal notes of meat. The wine is developing.
Palate: Dry with medium acidity, the wine has medium (+) tannin of ripe and velvety texture, showing high alcohol and full body. It has medium (+) flavors of black fruit such as blackberry, dark cherries and bilberry, oak notes of vanilla and cedar, sweet spice of nutmeg, dairy notes of cream. The wine has a long finish.
Conclusion: Very good Australia Shiraz depicting how best the varietal can taste, the wine has intense nose showing high complexity, with the palate being powerful yet surprisingly elegant, with a good balance on the fruit and tannin texture to make the high alcohol level not particularly awkward. Finishing with an exceptional length, the wine is ready to drink now though can benefit from further ageing of another 5-7 years.
