    May 11, 2019 - Bought a case at auction for a very good price and it is still drinking great. Decant for 2 hours and enjoy. Hard to believe

    July 15, 2015 - 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.

    January 29, 2013 - This wine was very good in 2009 and 2010, but now it has really aged into a well-balanced beautiful cab!

    September 17, 2012 - Started out as a fruit bomb, but as it breathed, the fruit mellowed and the subtle flavors came forward. Baking spices, cedarbox, and tobacco wrapper. Round and full in the mouth, the flavors last and last. Delicious!

Rockss and Fruit

    (Mollydooker Maitre'D) I mean I was in shock about how bad and undrinkable this wine was. First of all this did not even come close to being varietally correct. There was so much alcohol on the nose and on the palate that any other flavor is incidental. It's like someone got some mooonshine and spoofed it out and this is what happened. Like a baby with three arms this wine was a montrosity. If there was a circus freak show for wines this would be the main attraction. It was remarkable and fascinating tasting this wine as it breached a new level of wine horror for me. I insist every wine lover taste this wine and wines like this as to educate themselves what the other side is doing.
