The 2018 Mollydooker Enchanted Path boasts an intriguing nose of pomegranate, cherry and anise. The first sip brings a chorus of flavors that include blackberry and plum with vanilla and dark chocolate notes. Fine yet broad, the tannins create a smooth mouthfeel that carry the complex layers of flavor.

"A blend of 71% Shiraz (the same juice that goes into Carnival of Love) and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Enchanted Path features slightly lifted floral and herbal aromatics and hints of cassis on the nose, while the flavors on the palate are slightly brighter and redder. It's full-bodied, richly textured and intense, with ample extract, plenty of oak and well-ripened tannins, all of which lead to a finish that's long and slightly drying at the moment. Give it another year or two in the cellar, and it should drink well for at least the next 5-6 years after that." -JC, 7/31/20
