Good, Good Wine

Well, we've made the unsurprising discovery that we really, really like the uber-expensive bottle of wine we got for our anniversary. Really. As in, "yeah, I guess it really IS worth that much money..."

This is not necessarily a good discovery, of course. Now I'm going to feel guilty for wanting to buy more of it. It's probably good that there is a seriously limited amount of it available -- Mollydooker Velvet Glove shiraz. Yum. I don't pay a huge amount of attention to the wine ratings from all the wine magazines, but when a wine scores 98, 99 from more than one of them, it's probably as close to perfect as I'm going to find.

We are fans of Australian wines in general (must be our "broad American palates" that like the rich fruit) and I don't think we've had any of the Mollydooker wines that we didn't like. We've stocked up on their Boxer and recommend it whole heartedly to everyone!

But if you're looking for a nice bottle for a special occasion -- and are willing to drop two hundred bucks on the bottle for that special occassion...well, this is one I'd be more than happy to share with you!

Phouka, so glad that your anniversary bottle was enjoyed! The 2007 Velvet Glove is due in October and will be offered as pre-release a month or so early via our mailing list, in case you want another?

Best regards, and thanks for drinking Mollydooker wines!
