Mollydooker Carnival of Love 2010
Big, big, big is the first thing that comes to mind with this hulk of a wine. The palate explodes with sweet notes of blueberry pie, cassis and cherry jam mixed with bourbon and spice. While the creamy texture and velvety mouthfeel are inviting, the level of sweetness and heat from the alcohol, were a little too high for top marks. These two components combined with masses of sweet oak suggested to me that this wine would score brilliantly at a larger tasting.
Drink: Now as he will make another one next year.
