Review: Mollydooker Wines – The Boxer (2014)

The Boxer from Mollydooker Wines

The Wine Review:

Mollydooker is a winery known for producing big ball-busting reds, lots of fruit and high alcohol content. The Boxer fits right in the family with big punchy fruit and 15.5 % ABV.

Straight out of the bottle it gives an aroma of strong oak (vanilla & cinnamon) and alcohol. After swirling and airing it a bit in the glass, it leaves a jammy cordial-like aroma. The distinct Shiraz fruit nose is slightly hidden underneath and the alcoholic fumes “dilutes” a bit of the fruity smell. In addition, it has a little minty eucalyptus and spicy licorice. The aroma reminds me of a leathery Grenache. On the palate it has fine tannins and has a Grenache-like taste. It’s quite syrupy and “candy-like”. Mixed with the high octane alcohol, it’s like a dangerously sweet, easy-to-drink cocktail that will have you buzzing before you know it.

This wine’s Marvel character: She-hulk. Not normal but has alluring characteristics, hits like a truck.
