    January 30, 2019 - Incredibly silky/velvety on the front palate— this led to a fairly muted mid-palate and finish. Still drinkable with appreciable qualities but certainly at the end of its life.

    June 29, 2018 - Deep and dark mix of ruby and garnet red. Layered nose with eucalyptus, graphite, earthy, a touch of greenery, red berries and some barnyard. Medium tannins (5.5/10) with medium plus acidity and medium plus body. Layered palate with mint, herbs, black cherries, spices and a touch of greenery. Long finish. Drink till 2023. (90+)

    April 11, 2018 - I am a bit puzzled by the reviews that thought this wine was thin. My bottle was fabulously concentrated and dense, demanding sipping vs downing. While sometimes that intensity is coupled with excessive sweetness, I didn’t find that the case here. Had a nice finish with softened tannic structure

    February 1, 2015 - I apparently like this more than some of the other members. Bought directly from MD on release. I believe it is aging well and slightly softer than previous bottles. The tannins are fine-grained with abundant black fruit. There is a spice and black licorice flavors in a long finish. Drank with pulled pork BBQ--I would admit that this wine could easily overwhelm a more delicate meal.

    (MOLLYDOOKER GIGGLEPOT CABERNET SAUVIGNON) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-smells more like Shiraz, crazy Skittles, little dairy (oak); TASTE-this is a big wine, very extracted; humongous fruit, exactly like a Aussie Shiraz, massive in it\'s structure, downright delicious, a ton of fruit; you can find the same for $20; GV-88+
