2012 Mollydooker Shiraz Carnival of Love

McLaren Vale more

5/23/2015 - lfbaum Likes this wine: 94 points

Outstanding wine. From the moment of opening it, dark cherries and velvety notes on the notes. Wonderful finish. Drank it leisurely over a couple of hours and it got richer and more full as the night wore on.

Golden color with hints of green apples. Flavor becomes richer as the wine warms. Didn't serve too cold, around 50, but seemed best at near cellar temp.

Better than my first bottle. Notes of tar, cassis, and chocolate. Medium finish. Not a great 2010, but it's just coming into its own.

One of the best Fingerlakes Rieslings in 2012. Very pale in color. Notes of straw, citrus, and lavender. Smooth finish. Wish I had a lot more.

2011 Heart & Hands Pinot Noir Hobbit Hollow

Finger Lakes more

8/7/2014 - lfbaum Likes this wine: 92 points

When first opened, there are all sorts of cherry flavors; sweet, bing, and black. After an hour or so, it settles down with more subtle mulled cherry notes. A lot of attention has gone into this wine. Smooth finish.

Still delicious. Mild black cherries on the nose, smooth mid palette and finish. Held up for over an hour. Drank with 1999 and 2000 Stags Leap Cabs. Definitely the most interesting of the three.

This wine has definitely improved with age. It's now has a smokey complexion to it from the nose to the finish. Add to that flavors of tobacco and flint. Quite nice.
