The compelling nose exhibits aromas of scorched earth smoke grilled bacon blueberry compote and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied thick and rich this layered Shiraz is velvety-textured and opulent. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. It is a sensational value. It can be enjoyed now but will evolve for several years. 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

Ripe and smoky. A big polished mouthful of cherry and raspberry with peppery spicy overtones that mingle effortlessly with the fruit as the finish sails on. Drink now through 2011. 23944 cases made. –HS

Deep purple color extends almost all the way to the vibrant purple rim of this heavily extracted Shiraz. Big open nose full of licorice plum and rose petals with a hint of spice shining through as well. Very rich and opulent mid-palate leads to a long and surprisingly well balanced finish.
