A blockbuster Shiraz that is love at first sight and sniff!

Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue, with paint like cling. Beautiful top notes of liquorice, vanilla and blackberry overlaid by some toasted oak. A sniffing concentrate. On the palate flavours explode. Liquorice, vanilla and blackberry are overlaid by a confectionary back palate. Velvet smooth tannins. Very long aftertaste of blackberry, dark chocolate and very spicy black pepper.

Other Reviews….
The 2006 Shiraz “Carnival of Love” was sourced from a single vineyard. The sensational nose, consisting of violets, lilacs, meat, game, leather, blueberry, and chocolate, leaps from the glass. On the palate this full-bodied wine somehow manages to combine power with elegance. The sweet tannins are well-concealed and the finish lasts for at least one minute. It will provide pleasure for 25 years but who will be that patient? Mollydooker (the Australian equivalent of “Southpaw”– both Sparky and Sarah Marquis are left-handed) is the label of the renowned winemaking team of Sparky and Sarah Marquis. This is their second vintage following the schism with The Grateful Palate and the end of their involvement in the hugely successful Marquis Philips project. Total case production is 72,000, down from the 120,000 cases produced under the Marquis Philips label. They have also set up their own importing company in the United States.
