Lately our weekly wines have been somewhat demure. Nice, clean, crisp. This week’s is the exact opposite. David describes it as “big, bold and fun.” It is the kind of wine that wants to be front and center at a party. In fact, it would probably be mad that I took so long to introduce it. We are talking about Mollydooker “The Boxer” 2009 Shiraz, Australia. Even the name gives you a bit of attitude.
The flavors are smoky and spicy and big. And it is punctuated with the taste of currants and blueberries. Mollydooker packs a punch- and I am not just talking about the label! It is available for under $22.
