96 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The most dense and concentrated of the current Mollydooker offerings is the 2018 Velvet Glove Shiraz. Because of that, it's also among the most fruit-forward, with the oak elements of vanilla, mocha and cedar pushed into the background in favor of ripe raspberries and blackberries. Taut and focused for its size, this full-bodied effort is smooth and creamy textured on the palate, where the fruit glides into a long, velvety finish. 95 Points from Wine Spectator Offers impressive purity, concentration and focus, with a core of ripe, round and very generous blackberry and cherry flavors, set on a thick and plush frame. Dark chocolate, dried rosemary, clove, tobacco and subtle smoke accents add to the complexity and long, impressive finish. Drink now through 2037. Winemaker Notes Dense, dark and brooding in the glass, the 2018 Velvet Glove Shiraz is complex and sumptuous. Black plum, blueberries and roasted coffee intermingle with anise in its lifted fragrance. A supremely smooth molten chocolate mouthfeel accentuates the precise balance of infinitely complex structure, expressing deep flavors of berries, whilst liqorice and allspice linger on the palate. 2018 has produced a Velvet Glove of incredible eminence and elegance that is truly the pinnacle of Mollydooker Wines.
