Mollydooker Wines The Scooter Merlot 2014, McLaren Vale, Australia 

My Rating 91 Points.   

Price $30.
Deep ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Very fruity on the nose with black currants, plums, blackberries, licorice, chocolates, coffee, light bell pepper, coffee, leather, vanilla, violets, light alcohol and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity, rich and bold with long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, chocolates, leather and lots of peppercorn.

Long finish with medium tannins and tart raspberries.

A great Merlot from McLaren Vale, Australia. Complex and interesting, with a big mouthfeel. Balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.
This 2014 has much less alcohol (15% compared to the 17%).

Already drinking nicely and will improve in the next few years in the bottle.

I enjoyed it with assorted hard cheeses, appetizers and great company.

15% alcohol by volume.

  1. Nice to hear you had great accompaniments, in the people and places you shared with in this experience. Tell me; are there special places for just wine aficionados like that? Perhaps it would make a nice post, as well as to talk about other aspects of the wine trade in other posts? It’s an idea; I don’t know if you’d like to do it, but it might be interesting…
