hot, hot, hot! Right out of the bottle I found this very harsh with a ridiculously hot alcohol presence (did the moolydooker shake). After a few hours decanting it was much smoother and was even better the next day. A crazy barrage of dark fruit and dark chocolate with an extremely long, fiery finish. will have you under the table if you drink the whole bottle in a sitting.

Big, rich but not sweet deeply-fruited well-balanced Aussie wine. Savory, centered nose of plum and mineral. Excellent level of acid that balances deep rich ripe not sweet lip-smacking fruit, followed by almost a citrus-metallic tang and hints of other elements. Favors the front of the mouth and tip of the tongue. Still, weighty enough in the mid-palate. Finish of stone (or mineral), fruit, herbs. Body medium plus, acid medium plus, tannin medium plus. Dry. 68% shiraz, 17% merlot, 15% cab sauv. Delicious.

Took some work on the palate, moving it around to get it to open up, but it did with wonderful dense, concentrated and long deep berry flavors blended with great complexity. Very nice. Nose of sandalwood, incense, blackberry and blueberry. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 4/3/10

After so much hype I finally tried a Mollydooker - unfortunately this one had very little taste. I was expecting big levels of alcohol, but also big levels of fruit - this just smacked of alcohol.

Complex aromas of raspberry & white chocolate it is rich and dark. Its a big texture and incredibly dense, giving you a wonderfully rounded taste and a silky smooth finish. Only gets better the deeper into the bottle till the end. After 2 bottles for tasting I ended up buying a case.

Velvety, smooth, incredibly sexy wine. Completely worth it (had to search several places to find it), and you cannot go wrong with the "Molly Dooker Shake" technique. I paired this with a Greek rubbed sirloin, tzatiki sauce, and spinach/feta salad. Amazing! Careful, it is a higher gravity wine (as we found out the next morning). drink slowly.

Supple and generous, a full-on burst of dark berry, black cherry, licorice and tar aromas and flavors that power through a long and focused finish. Drink now through 2013.

Crisp in texture and a bit tannic, with ripe black fruits and smoky oak making for an intense combination of flavors, finishing rich and slightly herbal. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2010 through 2015.

Dark, dense and chewy. Not heavy, yet the meaty, smoky black cherry and plum flavors persist impressively on the solid finish. Needs time to soften. Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2007.

Smooth, vibrant and distinctive for its tarry blackberry and charred meat flavors, riding high on a sleek frame. Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2008 through 2016.

The 2007 Two Left Feet is a blend of 68% Shiraz, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Merlot aged in 50% new oak for 11 months. A glass-coating opaque purple, it offers up a complex aromatic array of violets, scorched earth, smoke, black cherry, and blueberry. On the palate it is full-bodied, layered, and concentrated, with loads of spicy, savory blue and black fruits, silky tannin, and a very long finish. It will continue to unfold for another 1ndash;2 years and drink well through 2017.
