Mollydooker 'Two Left Feet' Shiraz Blend 2010
"Two Left Feet has a deep garnet-purple color and a slightly closed nose of black currant cordial, mulberries, espresso and tree bark with a whiff of bacon. Full-bodied, ripe, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a good foundation of crisp acid and a medium level of silky tannins, finishing long." - Wine Advocate
So, it seems more than a few people do the Molly Dooker shake. Well, for what it's worth, I agree with you all: this is a very warm, inviting McLaren Vale wine with sherry-like medicinal notes, menthol, eucalyptus, cooked chokecherry and bilberry pie on both nose and palate. A bit warm for my personal preference, but delicious, quite nicely blanced depsite the 16% alcohol by volume and, well, manly. Strangely, many of my women friends love this wine despite its power. Just goes to show what we men know. Very nice if you can get it for under 25 dollars US. 89 points.
Dark, tight, meaty and roasty nose. Aromas of blackberry and blueberry reduction. Flavors of blackberries, blueberry with nuances of menthol, spice, anise and bacon fat. It's very concentrated, big, rich and ripe. Spicy palate with cumin and licorice yet retains velvety tannins and good, lively acidity. It's powerful and dark, rich and coating. Roasty with good pepper flavors. A tad warm on the palate. 86 pts. 11/10/12
This wine is amazingly smooth, bold, however its very sweet for a red, for OUR taste. So its given 4 glasses for quality, but on the Kozar scale 3. Would not buy again as there are other more earthy european full-bodied wines we prefer. That being said we have not met a Mollydooker we haven't enjoyed. All have been fantastic to drink. $69 VW.
Yet another great production from Mollydooker. The complexity here in the Enchanted Path is a bit more than with their pure Shiraz offerings. Dark deep rich flavor with a nice round pallet. With one sip you can tell you are in for a treat! $79.95 VW
Deep purple in the glass, receding to magenta at the rim. Mouthwateringly jammy nose. The palate is full and rich with notes of big blue and some red berry, some licorice, and finished with a nice pepper note. Big alcohol! Tasty, but just a bit too much. Needs food, or a few years of aging.
One of my favorites! Don't forget to do the 'Molly Dooker Shake!'
External Reviews for Mollydooker 'Two Left Feet' Shiraz Blend
Produced of 100% Shiraz from a single vineyard, the 2010 Carnival of Love was aged in American oak, 97% new. Very deep purple-black in color, it is intensely scented of blueberry preserves, creme de cassis and warm black cherries with an undercurrent of baking spices, licorice, mocha, vanilla, toast and eucalypt. Very full and densely packed with warm blackberry and spice flavors on the palate, it has a solid structure of medium to firm velvety tannins and very crisp acid, giving way to a very long finish. Still quite tight and primary, it should drink best 2014 to 2023+.
Very deep black-crimson, The Boxer shows a full spectrum of flavors from fresh berries and plum, to fig and blackberry jam, surrounded by cinnamon spice, licorice, and lovely warm oak with hints of cigar box and tobacco. Soft luscious palate-coating fruit with incredible depth, combined with creamy chocolate oak layers producing a complex wine with amazing power.
Ripe, round and smoky, displaying a toasty edge to the licorice and blackberry flavors, balanced deftly against refined tannins on the open-weave finish. Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2014.
Fresh and vibrant, this delivers a lively mouthful of dark cherry, mocha and bay leaf flavors that linger on the firm finish. Best after 2013. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. -HS Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2010 Mollydooker The Boxer 750ml
