tasty, not so complex, but enjoyable. better the 2nd day.  It had more secondary flavors and the fruit was not too Over the Top.  For $20 not bad.  Most people will like it.

the phillips high end stuff is great (integrity) but their entry level wines just seem disjointed and overripe. kind of like cough syrup.  tried to like it , but just too much oak, alcohol and jammy fruit..........

Dollar for dollar, you cannot go wrong...

A bid and dense wine. Very dark in the glass with big dark fruit aromas. Wine starts off with some baking spice notes and leads into heavy flavors of blackberry and dark cherry. Wine has a nice balance throughout with firm, yet nicely integrated tannins. This is probably the best wine I have had from Mollydooker dollar for dollar. The only downfall with this wine in my opinion is the alcohol level. It does not take away from the overall flavor and experience of the wine, but it does sit heavy on your palate after a few sips. It just makes this wine very hard to pair with food it would take away from the meal as it went on. Did I mention this is a big wine, even after a few years in the bottle? Give it a few more and maybe the alcohol will soften out. You will be very pleased with this wine overall either way.

A wine that deserves ample breathing time before tasting. It`s a known fact that this is a `hot` wine(high in alcohol content). Once she aired out this wine was all that she promised. A wonderful balanced wine.

Nyquil in a wine bottle

Big disappointment. After all the hype, I opened a bottle could smell and taste the fruit trying to come out only to be pushed back by the alcohol. At one point I could swear it tasted like Nyquil. I love big Austrailan Fruit bombs but this bottle was not doing it for me.
