    November 17, 2018 - Not very complex but very soothing. Big alcohol. Straight juicy middle ground. Happy numbness. No hard edges just dizzy oblivion.

    July 1, 2017 - Serve it blind and tell your guest it's a $100 Cali Cab and it would pass for many many people, so this is ridiculously good value. Not good enough for the $100+ club; it doesn't have that mineral chocolate back bone, but up to $100 no problem.

    Just great value for a big happy wine that is much more stylishly sophisticated than many would give it credit for.

    Serve it blind. I dare you.

    October 11, 2015 - This is a very high alcohol wine at 16% and this affects the taste and mouth feel. Deep solid red/purple color and the wine left a marked film on the glass. The nose was more limited than I was expecting - but the bottle appeared overfilled - just 1cm space to the top of the screw cap rather than the usual 2-3cm. This would limit the impact of the recommended Molly-Dooker shake as there is so little gas to mix into the wine. The taste was strong and smooth however, with lots of tannin. There was rich black fruit taste with a lingering after-taste. Another reviewer commented that Molly Dooker wines are a bit port-like due to the high alcohol. The wine is not sweet but I agree that it affects the taste.

    July 22, 2015 - 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.
