    Premiere, (See more on Sommelier Journal...)

    (Mollydooker Shiraz The Boxer) After many years of selling the incredible products of Sparky and Sarah Marquis (Fox Creek, Henry’s Drive, Marquis Philips), I recently learned that their last name is correctly pronounced MAR-kwis. I had even visited them eight years ago in South Australia to find out the secret behind their consistent, high-flying intensity and pure velvet textures. What do I know? There is no secret—just a smart, meticulously detailed approach to winemaking from the ground up. Mollydooker is the Marquises’ most recent venture, and the silly thing about the “The Boxer” is that its plush, juicy, wham-bam quality is no less intense than that of Shirazes selling for two or three times more. Expect pungent American oak (dill-like, vanillin notes) along with typically Aussie, round, fruit-bomb flavor, but the bottle cost (as low as $10 in some markets) makes it a powerful bottom-line performer.
