2006 Mollydooker Two Left Feet Shiraz Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon
This is far from a clumsy blend as its name might suggest. There are no awkward footsteps or tripping over as the wine twists and twirls on the palate. The blend is composed of 68% Shiraz, 17% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Top note of dark chocolate, followed by blackcurrant, cedar and spice with just a hint of liquorice. On the palate generous agile flavours of vanilla, confectionary and liquorice bounce over blackcurrant and spice. Fine grained tannins, spicy back palate. Strong aftertaste of blackberry and spice.
Cellar 3-4 years (2010-2011)
The 2006 Shiraz (68%) – Merlot (17%) – Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) “Two Left Feet” is a glass-coating opaque purple color. The brooding nose reveals plummy dark fruits, blueberry, licorice, and a hint of chocolate. On the palate it is thick, layered, and voluptuous. The structure is well-concealed and the wine is seamless and very long. It will reward a few years of cellaring but delaying gratification will be difficult. It is a great value. .
