10 Mollydooker "The Boxer" Shiraz ($30) ☺☺

This is a classic example of an Australian full bodied Shiraz, no wonder it is called the boxer. The wine does tend to hit you right up front with some great black fruit, hints of peppery spice and I also got hints of chocolate. On the palate the wine just keep on giving, loads of damson based flavors, licorice and that underlying spice. The wine comes in at a whopping 16% alcohol and has a long, long finish. Will be interesting to see how it ages but its great right now and good value at $30
