The walking embodiment of lack of finesse. I kid, I kid, but this could use some tannin, earth or spice to bring balance to the whole palate. Big, dark fruit, syrupy palate with massive, inky body, and a chalky, somewhat non-distinct finish. A display of towering power but still somehow lacking.

Fruit bomb in the first day; mellows out on the second. I prefer it on the second day. #winelover #aussiewine

Tried this at the winery in Mcclarenvale. Over the top Shiraz oozing with Blackberry and chocolate. Totally satisfying and great for dessert too

Pnp. Wonderful. The tannins are fading and it is drinking so perfectly right now.

Drinking well now but needs about 30 min to open up and let the high alcohol blow off.
Typically Molly Dooker massive black and blue fruits.
Drank with blue cheese topped filet mignon.

Big brooding dark fruits. Massive wine, not for the faint of heart.
Did the mollydooker shake on it and is drinking well right now.
The high abv isn't noticeable...unless you drink the whole bottle 🤪
