Again my only complaint is the price. It has a very dark color. Candy and fruit nose with something slightly floral going on. Black currant and lots of plum with a very faint bit of chocolate. Nice long finish. Drink with those who can appreciate or invite me over!!!

2006 Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz
Score: 98 points
Drink by: Now to 2 years
A spectacular wine. I have had the opportunity to drink this wine on several occasions, including once with winemaker Sparky Marquis (I have a couple of autographed - and sadly, empty - bottles). Though very high in alcohol, the fruit, acid and tannin were all in perfect balance. The quality is a testament to the Marquis` art since the berries are harvested from vines less than 5 years old yet the wine is something you would expect from "old vines" of significantly greater age. You can drink thsi one now or (if you can stand it) wait up to 10 years or more. Already a rare wine, it`s unfortunate that the 2007 vintage will be even more difficult to come by.
