Mollydooker Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
|Region||Australia, South Australia|
Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon "Gigglepot" is composed of 92% McLaren Vale fruit and 8% Langhorne Creek fruit. Opaque purple-colored, the wine coats the glass with glycerin. It offers alluring aromas of smoke, toast, pencil lead, black currants, and blackberry. On the palate this sleek, lustrous wine is more structured than the Maitre D'. It has deeper and more intense fruit and the finish is lengthy and pure. Give it 3-4 years of additional bottle age and drink it through 2027.
Wine SpectatorSoft, plush and round, with ripe cherry and currant flavors at the fore, hinting at cedar and chocolate as the finish persists impressively against very fine tannins. Best from 2008 through 2014.
