2009 Mollydooker Shiraz Velvet Glove, 94 points

2009 Mollydooker Shiraz Velvet Glove

(Australia, South Australia, Fleurieu, McLaren Vale)

I scored this wine 94 points because it was young but I can see this wine hitting 96ish easy.  After tasting the 2009 it told me I definitely want to cellar much more of this wine. Very dark purple and inky in color.  Almost like an aged port. Very Jammy wine wine with Bing cherries, deep vanilla and strong blackberry.  The transition was smooth and balanced with a long hang time that stayed fruity. This wine is a fruit bomb and of good quality.  i cant say enough about this wine.  In a few years it will be stellar.  It’s a little pricey at 160 bucks but it can hold its own.  give this one a try but cellar it for a while.
