Mollydooker Enchanted Path Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
|Region||Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale|
The 2005 Enchanted Path (66% Shiraz and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in primarily American oak, 60% new) is fashioned from relatively young vines. It reveals an amazing opaque purple/blue/black color (always a hallmark of Marquis wines), a full-bodied, powerful, smoky nose, extravagant layers of fruit, spice, glycerin, and extract, full body, superb intensity, tremendous richness, and a seamless personality. It is a textbook example of a southern Australian red at its richest, fullest, and most pure. For consumers with open minds and progressive palates, this amazing red should age beautifully for 10-15 years.
Bold and distinctive for its peppery blackberry aromas and flavors and firm tannins, which give the flavor profile a kick, sending it into the long, juicy finish. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2008 through 2014. 2,397 cases made.
