The 2005 The Boxer Shiraz (primarily from McLaren Vale, followed by Langhorne Creek and Padthaway) exhibits a black/blue/purple color, an incredible density of fruit along with that tell-tale purity, blackberries, white flowers, melted chocolate, sweet licorice, and subtle wood. Full-bodied, beautifully textured and layered with an awesome finish... (RP)
Aging beautifully, the 2005 Mollydooker Shiraz The Boxer has lost the baby fat it had in its youth and shows a more traditional shiraz character. The nose is packed with dark fruits, pepper, leafy tobacco, meat and vanilla and while it showed a trace of heat right on opening, it fleshed out beautifully with air. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with a thick, mouth coating texture, ripe fruit, and a long finish. While I liked this more in its youth, it’s far from falling apart and I don’t think will have any issues drinking well over the next 5 or more years.
Dark and dense. A big wine, yet lively with nutmeg- and cinnamon-scented blackberry, cherry and licorice flavors, balanced against firm but well-integrated tannins. Needs some time to soften. *Top 100 Wines of 2006, Smart Buy* (HS)
Generous black fruits and lots of dark chocolate in full-on McLaren Vale style, rich and satisfying.
