2005 Mollydooker "Enchanted Path" Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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. 9RP)
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.
This wine represents the partnership between husband and wife winemakers Sarah and Sparky Marquis. This is a beautiful example of two varieties blended to become one. The nose is rich and powerful, with lifted blackberry, plum and spice aromas. As you sip, your palate is filled with immense flavor. With an elegant, silky smooth texture, this wine lingers long after the sip has gone. 66% Shiraz and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon.
