The 2005 Enchanted Path (66% Shiraz and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in primarily American oak, 60% new) is fashioned from relatively young vines. It reveals an amazing opaque purple/blue/black color (always a hallmark of Marquis wines), a full-bodied, powerful, smoky nose, extravagant layers of fruit, spice, glycerin, and extract, full body, superb intensity, tremendous richness, and a seamless personality. It is a textbook example of a southern Australian red at its richest, fullest, and most pure. For consumers with open minds and progressive palates, this amazing red should age beautifully for 10-15 years.

Bold and distinctive for its peppery blackberry aromas and flavors and firm tannins, which give the flavor profile a kick, sending it into the long, juicy finish. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. 2,397 cases made.

Avoids the usual Australian excesses with a nice blend of Cab and Shiraz. Pepper and berry, followed by tannin and a nice finish. Ready now.

About This Producer


Scientific methodology prevails at quirky Australian winery Mollydooker, a 1995 creation of husband and wife Sparky and Sarah Marquis. Famed for their consistently high-scoring "Velvet Glove" Shiraz, the Marquis team strives to produce the "velvet glove" palate sensation, a blanket of flavor that covers the palate before the structure is revealed, in all their blends. This process of creating intense color and flavor profiles starts in the vineyard, where growers for Mollydooker employ the trademarked Marquis Vineyard Watering System. The vineyard management philosophy stresses canopy balance and strong, healthy vines in order to produce grapes of maximum Marquis Fruit Weight. This grading system involves numerous tastings during the winemaking process to determine the wine's final bottling destination, based on a percent scale. Only wine graded 60% or higher on the Fruit Weight scale is accepted for Mollydooker labels. The highest graded fruit goes into the Velvet Glove designation, making it a truly profound bottling. Other bottlings produced include The Love Series: Carnival of Love and Enchanted Path, which are blends of Shiraz and Cabernet; The Party Series, also made from Shiraz and Cabernet; and the Lefty Series, made from Shiraz, Cabernet, Merlot, and Verdelho.
