These Wines Are BIG BABY, REAL BIG!!! So are the DISCOUNTS!

G’day and How ya goin’ from Carpe Vino!  We’ve just received our new releases from Mollydooker Wines, and they will be open to taste this Saturday only, April 5th, from 12-4pm for Wine Club Members.(Please remember two person maximum per wine club membership.)   As you know, once a month we feature a winery/winemaker, and this week, we are proud to feature some of the most acclaimed Shiraz from Australia.  These wines generally SELL OUT within a month of release and after the scores they received they most definitely will this year too!  Originally, Mollydooker Winemakers, Sarah & Sparky Marquis, set out to make the best bulk wine in the world, but that was not too be.  Instead the pair ended up making some of the most highly rated Australian Wines ever, by achieving top scores from Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator. Here is a real spectacular opportunity to taste some amazing wines, offered at extraordinary discounts.  Here is what we will be pouring:

Mollydooker “The Boxer” Shiraz 2012 (Australia)

images.110249$26.50/bottle or $23.85/bottle on six +

“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 89 POINTS
“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 The Boxer Shiraz opens with tons of intense chocolate, vanilla and spice intermingling with an aromatic core of ripe and berry preserves. Very big, full and rich, it is so concentrated you could practically stand a spoon up in the glass. The medium-level velvety tannins hold through the long, slightly hot, finish. Drink it now to 2017.”
“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes: 89 POINTS
“Dark and spicy, with a peppery edge to the black olive-accented blackberry flavors, finishing with a touch of heat. Drink now through 2018.”

Jay’s Take:  “This crowd pleaser was named ‘The Boxer,’ because the very first person to taste it said, ‘It’s a knockout!’ This one packs a punch, and is a good bang for the buck wine.”




Mollydooker “Blue Eyed Boy” Shiraz 2012 (Australia)

BlueEyedBoy-152x362.104737$39.95/bottle or $24.95/bottle on six +

“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 91 POINTS
“A 100% McLaren Vale blend aged one year in 90% new American oak, the deep purple-black colored 2012 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz shows beautiful black fruit, warm cassis and mulberry notes with a spot of preserved plums, anise and yeast extract. This very spicy, very big and full-bodied wine is rich, viscous and concentrated. It finishes long and just a little warm. Drink it now to 2020+.”
“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes: 92 POINTS
“Ink-dark, with a savory edge to the layers of black cherry, red plum, raspberry and licorice that rise up from the velvety tannins, forming a generous, plush finish. Best from 2016 through 2020.”

Jay’s Take:  “Named after the Sarah & Sparky’s son Luke, the Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz is smooth and rich. This is definitely one not to miss, especially at that discount!”





Mollydooker “Carnival Of Love” Red Wine 2012 (Australia)

Molly1-152x362.105034$64.95/bottle or $39.95/bottle on six +

“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 95 POINTS
“Very deep purple-black in color, the 100% Shiraz, single vineyard 2012 Carnival of Love exudes fragrant notes of warm blackberries, creme de cassis and dried mulberries intermingled with a lovely dried herb undercurrent, lavender, dark chocolate and anise. With a nice structure of medium to firm rounded tannins and a lively acid backbone, this very big, full and rich wine has a very long finish. Drink it now to 2025+.”
“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes: 95 POINTS
“Sinewy, lithe and expressive, packing red berry, black cherry and cardamom aromas and flavors into a tightly focused package. The finish expands and powers up, driving a long and meaty finish. Displays muscle and poise. Drink now through 2022.”

Jay’s Take:  “Named for the the Sarah & Sparky’s philosophy on life that, ‘love would be that place where you desire no more,’ the Carnival of Love has that WOW factor! Over the last 10 years this wine has not only been awarded scores as high as 99, but also has never received a score lower than 93.  A Must See!”




Mollydooker “Enchanted Path” Red Wine 2012 (Australia)

MollyEnchantedPath-152x362.105506$64.95/bottle or $39.95/bottle on six +

“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 92 POINTS
“The very deep purple-black colored 2012 Enchanted Path is a blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon that offers a lovely perfume of cassis and black cherry compote, some pencil shavings, vanilla and mocha notes. Very full, rich and powerful with a nice backbone of firm, fine tannins and refreshing acid, it finishes long. Drink it now to 2022+.”
“Wine Spectator” Tasting Notes: 93 POINTS
“Dark and focused, expansive and juicy, with blackberry and black olive notes at the core. Offers hints of licorice and floral as the finish expands. Delivers ample depth, poise and expressiveness. Drink now through 2020.”

Jay’s Take:  “The Enchanted Path, named for the Sarah & Sparky’s journey through their love of life and winemaking, is a classic Australian blend that creates complex flavors full of bright-berry and dark-fruit.”
