Very good balance and super bold, after half an hour the 16% alcohol stands out though — 2 years ago
Still going strong...
A gift from our friend @Martin G Rivard several years ago - thank you my friend.
This is a departure from our Napa cabs, but very welcome. ￼
The new pandemic is in this bottle: oak and spices dominate here. This is intensely complicated, and lacks linearity. In spite of this, it impresses. Fruits are so decadent - overripe cherries, with cinnamon rose petals and nutmeg notes coming along for the ride. Tannins are prominent, yet integrated. Swipe to the right on this. — 3 months ago

The 2018 Mollydooker ‘The Velvet Glove’ Shiraz is a utterly sensational bottling that rivals any wine of its kind. Aged in all new American oak, this shows a gorgeous bouquet from blueberry pie to espresso grounds, graphite and toasty oak tones that all impress. The palate is deep and utterly seamless. A massive core of blue and dark fruits collide with white pepper, minerals, firm tannins and a light dusting of salinity. While obviously big, this has a weightless quality and wonderful verve. Wonderful to enjoy now, this outstanding Shiraz will provide drinking enjoyment for at least another fifteen years. But why wait? Drink 2021-2038- 98 — 2 months ago
