MOLLYDOOKER Shiraz 'Carnival of Love' 2014

The 2014 Mollydooker 'Carnival of Love' Shiraz is an insanely good bottling from this storied producer in South Australia. Possessing an inky dark core, this intense wine opens with creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, and hints of mocha and crushed mint. The palate is intense and deep with intoxicating flavors of creme de cassis, anise, black cherry cough syrup, violets, blueberry compote, ripe red strawberry, boysenberry liqueur and suggestions of black peppercorn. The minerality of this wine is apparent, as this shows a hedonistic bent while displaying beautiful structure. The finish is exceedingly long, and mocha driven. This masssive Shiraz will drink exceedingly well straight out of the bottle, but can benefit from a one hour decant. Drink this incredible wine over the next 15 years. Exceptionally bold at 16.5%. alcohol, this still maintains wonderful poise and balance.(Best 2016-2026) - December, 2016 (OB)
