The 2006 Shiraz â_oBlue Eyed Boyâ__ is predominantly Padthaway fruit. Purple-colored it has an intense aromatic display of smoke violets mulberry blueberry and chocolate.

Purple-colored it has an intense aromatic display of smoke violets mulberry blueberry and chocolate. This leads to a full-bodied plush wine with layers of ripe spicy black fruits excellent focus and delineation. The tannins are well-concealed but this wine has enough stuffing to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink it through 2025. Mollydooker (the Australian equivalent of â_oSouthpawâ__â_" both Sparky and Sarah Marquis are left-handed) is the label of the renowned winemaking team of Sparky and Sarah Marquis. This is their second vintage following the schism with The Grateful Palate and the end of their involvement in the hugely successful Marquis Philips project. Total case production is 72000 down from the 120000 cases produced under the Marquis Philips label. They have also set up their own importing company in the United States.Mollydooker has been divided into four tiers beginning with â_oThe Lefty Seriesâ__. These five wines are line-priced at $20. Next up the ladder is â_oThe Party Seriesâ__ priced at $50 a bottle followed by two wines comprising â_oThe Love Seriesâ__ priced at $80. At the top of the pyramid is one wine â_oThe Velvet Gloveâ__ Shiraz priced at $175.Importer: Mollydooker International www.mollydookerwines.com.au

Rich and ripe with a powerful blast of blackberry licorice and smoky spice flavors rocketing through the long finish against highly polished tannins. Yet somehow this strikes a deft balance. Needs some roast meat to tame... Rich and ripe with a powerful blast of blackberry licorice and smoky spice flavors rocketing through the long finish against highly polished tannins. Yet somehow this strikes a deft balance. Needs some roast meat to tame it. Drink now through 2016. 7521 cases made. –HS

This inky Shiraz boasts a dark purple core protruding almost all the way to the bright/vibrant rim. Lovely nose of blueberry plum and all-spice. Just a hint of cardamom and coffee round out the nose quite well. Very soft... This inky Shiraz boasts a dark purple core protruding almost all the way to the bright/vibrant rim. Lovely nose of blueberry plum and all-spice. Just a hint of cardamom and coffee round out the nose quite well. Very soft up front leading to to a luscious mid-palate of plum and vanilla. Every component is nicely integrated as this wine in certainly not the over-the-top style I had first suspected it might be. Silky and smoothe with a very supportive backbone which bolsters this big Shiraz all the way through the finish.
