Mollydooker The Boxer Shiraz 2019
WHO IS THE BOXER? The very first person to taste this wine said, "It's a knockout!" so Sarah and Sparky named it The Boxer. Did you notice he is a double Mollydooker?
This alluring and unashamedly bold Shiraz has hints of spiced plums, blackberry jam and cherry all at the fore and finishes with coffee cream, licorice and vanilla. Full bodied with vibrant berry fruit characteristics, yet elegant with restrained tannins, resulting in a soft mouthfeel. This 2019 Boxer is sure to be a knockout!
"Mollydooker's 2019 The Boxer Shiraz is—no surprise here—a big, plush wine that's labeled at 16% alcohol. Despite that, it's only a bit warm on the palate, with sufficient masses of blackberry fruit and vanilla oak to stand up to the alcohol. Full-bodied and supple, it's barrel fermented in nearly 50% new oak, all of it American, but somehow comes across as pretty and harmonious, an oversized version of Fantasia's Hyacinth Hippo dancing to its own beat." 90 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
