Mollydooker the Carnival of Love Mclaren Vale 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our whole family is involved in making our wines, and many of those who enjoy Mollydooker wines become our friends, so we named this wine the Carnival of Love, because the wines bring us all together. If you look closely you will notice that the Lefty characters are all included in the label and when you join the Carnival of Love and the Enchanted Path together, the two labels form one beautiful continuous love story.

deep inky ruby color with viscous legs; intense, opulent blackberry, blueberry and tar on the nose; full bodied, lush mouthfeel and a bit hot; tastes like stereotypical big aussie shiraz...then again i'm drinking it out of a red solo cup, so who knows

Nose is intoxicating, literally... with blueberry jam on toast and vanilla. Dark and obviously hot. Full bodied and showing sweet blackberry that turns spicy but drying after the initial flavor burst that finishes very hot with a lasting flavor of sour blackberry on the finish. This wine is out of balance. I know there are people out there that really enjoy these but obviously, I'm not one of them. This wine could be poured over ice cream of drank for a quick buzz.

Loved this, huge ripe fruits, balanced rich tannins. Stays in your face for what seems like forever! Just a power wine with fantastic fruit!

Tried the wine pre and post Mollydooker shake. The shaking definitely opens the wine up a lot. Yes, you can trust the seal on the screwcap. This is inky, fruity stuff. I can see this going over amazingly at a party or a bbq but this is not a wine to be drunk in a quiet setting. I will have to revisit in the proper setting.

Tasted from an enomatic system. Shiraz is hit or miss with me, but this is a deep, dark, complex nosed and delicious example of great Australian shiraz. Great notes of dark berries, oak, chocolate. I was pleasantly surprised.

Explosive fruit on this, as well as some tight tannins. Definitely decant if you will be drinking now. Lots of bramble fruit on the palate - it is a mouthfull!

Inky purple. Boysenberry and blueberry syrup aromas, with notes of chocolate syrup, and a whiff of heat gaining strength with air. Thick, creamy and extremely sweet; tastes like an artificial dark berry pancake syrup, with no noticeable tannins or acidity. The finish refuses to let go of the palate, suggesting that persistence isnrsquo;t always a good thing. I thing Irsquo;ve finally found the wine to serve with the Luther Burger.

The opaque purple-colored 2007 Blue-Eyed Boy Shiraz spent 12 months in 80% new American oak. It offers up an enticing nose of cedar, tobacco, mineral, blueberry, and black raspberry. Opulent on the palate, this glossy effort will evolve for another 1... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy 750ml

Mollydooker 07 The Boxer


External Review
12/03/2009

96 Points - Wine Spectator "Lithe, generous and beautifally proportioned, offering a seamless array of dark plum, blueberry and sandalwood flavors wrapped in a veil of fine-grained tannins. Finishes with an intriguing face-off of sweet fruit and spice that keeps on for quite a while. Best from 2011 through 2019. "
