Blueberry pie in a glass. Ripe, rich, and high alcohol. Like a blueberry pie and coconut cream pie had a baby and turned it into a wine.

Slightly over extracted and deeply concentrated, not something I usually enjoy much, but this is different. Aroma of black and blue fruits, dark chocolate, espresso that carry through the palate. Big and powerful in a velvet glove - wait, MollyDooker does have a bottle called Velvet Glove! The 16.5% abv was not noticeable. Immensely enjoyable.

Dark purple in color. Dark chocolate, coffee bean, blackberry, and vanilla on the nose. Very full bodied with intense flavors of ripe, dark fruit on the palate. Despite 16.5% alcohol, somehow it all comes together. $28.

Loved this sense, dark, fruity, spicy Shiraz. Great value, good tannins but not overshadow my the yummy fruit and slight pepper. Maybe my fave Shiraz for the $. Would be nice to hold onto a couple years if we can wait!
