My subject line can’t state it any clearer. These prices from our distributor, which we are passing along to you with this offer, are unbelievable for these fantastic wines. These are volume prices. If we don’t hit the minimum required for these prices, first, shame on you!, second, we’ll recalculate prices and ask if you want to continue with the purchase. For those of you familiar with Molly Dooker, jump to the link below where you’ll find pricing and some selected ratings. For those of you not familiar with these wines, read on:

While there are more wines than I’ll highlight here, I’ll give you three of my favorites, plus one incredible bargain.

2010 Molly Dooker The Maitre’D
Member Price: [Login to see member prices.]
Retail Price: $35.99
This is a 90-point Cabernet Sauvignon, available at less than twenty dollars! We tried this at our Fifth Wednesday tasting back in February. Even at that price, five-and-a-half dollars higher, it was the star of the show. We couldn’t get pricing this good then, but you have it now. From Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: ‘Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 The Maitre’d Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of creme de cassis and black cherry preserves with a hint of mocha and a touch of hung meat. Full-bodied, the palate fills the mouth with warm berry and savory flavors supported by crisp acid and a medium level of fine grained tannins, finishing long. Drink it now 2017.’ - 90 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, www.erobertparker.com

2010 Molly DookerTwo Left Feet
Member Price: [Login to see member prices.]
Retail Price: $35.99
This Shiraz-Cab-Merlot blend starts with a big fruit impact, but the structure remains. It finishes well and the blend of berries with vanilla and oak make this a wine to savor. From Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: A blend of 72% Shiraz, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Merlot, the 2010 Two Left Feet has a deep garnet-purple color and a slightly closed nose of black currant cordial, mulberries, espresso and tree bark with a whiff of bacon. Full-bodied, ripe, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a good foundation of crisp acid and a medium level of silky tannins, finishing long. Drinking nicely now, it should keep to 2017+. 90 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown,www.erobertparker.com

2010 Molly Dooker Carnival of LoveMember Price: [Login to see member prices.]
Retail Price: $109.99
I couldn’t believe this price when I saw it. This was the clean-up wine of that Fifth Wednesday, and was ten bucks more expensive than this. A single-vineyard Shiraz, this wine starts with fruits, mostly berry, and is layered on the palate and has a long finish. This is a wine that probably isn’t completely ready to drink now, but with sufficient decanting, you can enjoy your first bottle now and your other bottles over the next ten-plus years: From Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: ‘Produced of 100% Shiraz from a single vineyard, the 2010 Carnival of Love was aged in American oak, 97% new. Very deep purple-black in color, it is intensely scented of blueberry preserves, creme de cassis and warm black cherries with an undercurrent of baking spices, licorice, mocha, vanilla, toast and eucalyptus. Very full and densely packed with warm blackberry and spice flavors on the palate, it has a solid structure of medium to firm velvety tannins and very crisp acid, giving way to a very long finish. Still quite tight and primary, it should drink best 2014 to 2023+’. – 95 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, www.erobertparker.com

Lastly, I’m throwing this one out there for those of you who will really enjoy a single-vineyard, classic Shiraz. You know who you are:

2010 Molly Dooker Velvet Glove
Member Price: [Login to see member prices.]
Retail Price: $177-200
You may recall from this time last summer the producers lost $1,000,000 worth of this wine in a dockside accident. Yet there’s still enough to pass along this offer. Deep red, this is a classic expression of Shiraz. From Wine Advocate: ‘Coming from row selection within a single vineyard, the 2010 Velvet Glove was matured in American oak, 97% new. Very deep garnet-black, it offers very pure, pronounced notes of ripe cassis and blackberries with underlying nuances of cedar, anise, hung meat, black tea and violets. Full bodied, very ripe and with layers of generous fruit, the opulence is well supported with a medium to high level of fine-grained tannins and crisp acid. It finishes very long. It should be at its best 2014 to 2024+. Unfortunately because of an accident at the warehouse during which about 1/3 of the production was destroyed, there are only 1012 cases’. – 97 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, www.erobertparker.com

I’m thrilled to be able to bring this offer to you. I know where I’m stocking up, and I invite you to join me.

    I tend not to drop a lot of remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here Unbelievable Molly Dooker | The Wine Guild of Charlottesville.
    And I actually do have a few questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Could it be just me or does it look like a few of
    these comments come across like coming from brain dead visitors?
