Community Tasting Notes 7

    October 14, 2019 - Not the typical bottle I like to enjoy, but there is a time and place for most things, and when the wife says she wants a jammy red wine, well, here we are.

    For being a Mollydooker, I was surprised at how nimble this was. Sure, it was a hedonistic and rich style, but it didn’t seem too hot or flabby. Lots of cocoa powder, freshly dipped chocolate covered black cherries, savory cherry tobacco leaves and finished with a note of Andes mint. Nice spice here, actually. 16.5ABV! Can’t believe I’m drinking a 2017 Shiraz...will probably get a touch better, but these are obviously near term drinkers.

    No rating as my tastes have changed, but this fits the bill for jammy fruit bomb if you’re looking for that type of thing.

    October 9, 2019 - Quick decant, re-bottled, poured 1 hour later, then drank over 5 hours. Delicious sweet & tart blueberries. Smooth. Enjoyable yet young. Better with time.

    August 3, 2019 - Prior to this in had the Carinival 2016 which I gave 93 and this i give 94. This is deeper, still to slightly alcoholic, but theres a magic Molly midlayer ... oh yeah

    May 25, 2019 - Winebar [1 Rosé, 3 Whites, 8 Reds, & 7 *shared* bottles] from 05/24/19 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Frt from the Coppermine Road, Gateway, Long Gully Road, & Mollydooker Home Vyds of McLaren Vale, picked 19th April–5th May; Barrel fermented & aged in 100% AM oak (58% new & 42% one yr old); 16.5% ABV, 3 g/L R.S., & 3.55 pH; 10,100 cases made @ $55 sugg retail.

    N: Closed, but DEFINITELY *ripe* berries with intensity lurking

    P: MF body; RNDISH entry with NICE, ALMOST swtish frt (approaching threshold R.S.?) met by astringent pucker which slowly evolves into a LONG, finish with a tangy/SWTNESS (30:70) to the dusty tannins. For now & into early '22? My VG+/EXC- in this style that teases one's swtness threshold. 92 pts WS, who feels this will last WAY longer than I do. [This vendor's $41.95 is as good as any of wine-searcher's current postings.]

    May 4, 2019 - Sweeter blue fruits and a stronger sense of chemical manipulation than other iterations. Lacking the structure to support the massive extraction, and the back features oak imparted bitterness. More power to all who enjoy such...well...wine-like beverages. The most unbalanced in a flight of modern wines tasted on this occasion.
