Mollydooker Velvet Glove Shiraz 2014
Syrah/Shiraz from Australia
Deep dark purple in color, Velvet Glove indulges your senses with fresh berries, plum, vanilla, licorice and hints of clove. Intense chocolate layers, accompanied with luscious cherry and blackberry fruits result in a rich and opulent mouthfeel. With beautiful balance and finesse, its finely poised tannins and concentrated flavors shine radiantly long after the first sip.
Wine Spectator - "Dark, rich and bold, with a velvety richness to the dense tannins, providing the backbone for thick flavors of black walnut liqueur, blueberry syrup, sandalwood and espresso. Gains intensity on the long finish. Not for the faint of heart. Drink now through 2030. "

New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley.
