Lots of layers, smooth tannins, nice long finish — 2 months ago
Visited the Molly Dooker property in April 2019 and tasted through all their wines. Sparky and Sarah split and Sarah now runs the place. This is a rich, concentrated merlot that should have been decanted for maximum benefit. Outback has a $10 corkage fee which is great for us from California. Houston isn’t corkage friendly like CA. — 5 months ago
Ok peeps, many people have asked for more deets regarding our little cellar...
1.8m x 0.6m x 2.25m. The floor is Portuguese black slate (1cm thick). Floor, walls and ceiling are insulated with high-density foam, which has a low thermal conductivity. Chiller is housed remotely. Ducting pulls clean air from outside, and dumps exhaust air outside. Basically, everything is custom - my design, and a great contractor realized our dream. @Mo Salem was instrumental with renovating our home, and the germ of the idea came from him.
This wine big and bold. Visually show its age. Cinnamon, cloves and pepper define the nose and palate. The oak monster is evident on the mid palate. Great tannins and complimentary acidity. This will sail on for another 5 years, but best consumed now. — a month ago
Dark Ruby with aromas of fresh crushed berry fruit with earthy tones. On the palate cherry and blackberry flavors with pepper spice, tobacco and cacao on fine dusty tannins. Long finish, nice mouthfeel, ending with fruit and an oak mineral character. Nice! — a month ago
