2017 MollyDooker The Boxer Shiraz
It has been waaaaaaaaay too long since I have 1) posted (more about that below) and 2) enjoyed any MollyDooker wines. I found a local wine store who carries MD, so I'm a happy guy now! The 2017 Boxer is just as lovely as previous years and I get completely lost in a bottle of my favorite Australian producer very easily. Yes, I did do the Mollydooker Shake on this bottle.....make that these bottles as we drank them both in an evening. The richness of plum, chewy chocolate and cherry pie filling completely filled the mouth and created a find coating and incredible finish. I find around my hometown many folks are not familiar with MollyDooker, and I'm going to make it my mission to educate them on these delicious wines!
Part two? Where have I been? I've been here tasting wines and posting mainly on Instagram. I have had one heck of a time accessing both my blog and email associated with the blog. I had accidentally stopped my email subscription some months ago and it is nearly impossible to get things up and running again. BUT, with the help of a very nice gentleman today (after multiple request tickets, phone calls and chats to Google), I again have full access to my blog and email! You will be seeing more of me now!.
