2008 Mollydooker "Two Left Feet" Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot (Previously $25)

SKU #1050096

90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Two Left Feet is a blend of 68% Shiraz, 17% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon which also spent 11 months in 50% new French and American oak. A glass-staining opaque purple color, it emits an enticing aromatic array of sandalwood, Asian spices, incense, blueberry, and blackberry preserves. Dense, sweet, and layered on the palate, it is surprisingly light on its feet despite its size. Concentrated, lengthy, and full-flavored, this wine is all about pleasure. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years." With complex aromas of raspberry, plum, white chocolate and a touch of smoky earth, this is rich and layered with spicy dark fruit, chocolate and silky tannins. This blend has superb aromas of butterscotch, plum, white chocolate, cherries and raspberry. Its big, unctuous texture and incredibly dense, spicy fruit give you a wonderfully rounded mouth-feel and a silky smooth finish. As in years past, the mouth-filling texture gives this wine a very long finish. Delicious!

Another deal where the supplier is holding too much of this wine and we can't resist negotiating a better price on what was already a stellar buy from this category. It is no surprise that the "Two Left Feet" is a deeply luscious and fruit-laden wine. The surprise is that the wine is focused and shows balance. Rich black fruit, some Asian spice box notes, flavors of creme de cassis and chambord, it is unapologetic and will be best served with steaks strait off the grill, bbq ribs slow smoked to perfection or just about any dish with lamb as the focus.

Australia

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great Region are in the southeastern area of the continent, with the Barossa Valley, Claire Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia, the Yarra Yarra Velley and Pyrenees in Victoria and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from the land Down Under. While many equate Aussie wines with "value", there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
