2006 Mollydooker - Shiraz Carnival of Love Syrah - Australia - South Australia - McLaren Vale - Red

Australia - South Australia - McLaren Vale

Red Syrah
Producer Notes

Scientific methodology prevails at quirky Australian winery Mollydooker, a 1995 creation of husband and wife Sparky and Sarah Marquis. Famed for their consistently high-scoring "Velvet Glove" Shiraz, the Marquis team strives to produce the "velvet glove" palate sensation, a blanket of flavor that covers the palate before the structure is revealed, in all their blends.

Wonderful Wine. Had in comparison with an Enchanted Path (same year). This wine clearly outpaced the EP with strong notes of chocolate, dark berry, and an overall silky finish. I highly recommend this wine as it's a better value than the Velvet Glove. However, this a big, fruit forward bomb of a wine. You've got to like MD wines to enjoy this.

DEEP DARK RUBY RED, GORGEOUS NOSE OF BLUEBERRIES AND RASPBERRIES WITH WONDERFULLY INTEGRATED SOFT TANNINS AND AN AMAZINGLY LONG FINISH.

Rich wine with much fruit that is typical of these "big" shiraz's. But given how good the base Molly Dooker wines are, I thought I would be blown away by this wine. Unfortunately I wasn't. A very good wine, but I would rather have 3 or 4 other M-D wines than 1 of these.

Friday, November 19, 2010 - We were surprised by how monolithic this wine presented. The nose was deep black fruit with some vanilla but was quickly lost by a wave of alcoholic heat. First taste was pretty much the same as the last -- super ripe fruit with never a twist or layer of other flavors. Then finished with another hit of the alcoholic heat. This bottle reminded me of a goshawk that goes right at the prey -- no maneuvering, no beautiful movement -- just a straight attack that gets the job done. Overall, a disappointing bottle of wine for all the wine descriptions and price.

Loaded with ripe, purple fruit that stains the pallet. This wine really benefits from a short decanting. After 2 hours a fine balance and velvety texture became evident, as did a pleasant nose of red fruit. Very dense, dark fruit with vanilla and wood undertones. This wine is growing on me. I'm glad I bought a case.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
