Very enjoyable. Don't forget to do the "Mollydooker Shake." Nice video on their website demonstrating the technique. Powerful & Full with a long finish. Have a bottle of Blue Eyed Boy that I can't wait to open based on how much I enjoyed the Boxer!

My first taste of "The Boxer" and a pleasant experience it was. This wine is perfect for drinking on its own in convivial ambiance with its deep, rich, dense and noticeably sweet, candied Maraschino cherry dominance of the palate. Very Oz, with the power and majesty of a usurper of the throne, this wine has, in my opinion, less elegance or finesse than (say) a top rank Côte-Rotie - if that's what you're seeking. But this does not mean the wine is not very, very good; simply that it is what it is and is good at what it is. Delicious!

Dark and dense. A big wine, yet lively with nutmeg and cinnamon-scented blackberry, cherry and licorice flavors, balanced against firm but well integrated tannins. Needs some time to soften. Best from 2007 through 2014.

The 2007 The Boxer Shiraz is a saturated purple color with an expressive nose of balsam wood, violets, scorched earth, and blueberry compote. Dense and rich on the palate, it has layers of succulent fruit, lots of spice, and a lengthy finish. It is surprisingly elegant for its size. It, too, can be enjoyed through 2017.

Supple and generous, with spicy blackberry and tar flavors, lingering effortlessly with a thin veil of fine tannins. Drink now through 2013.
