Tasting Notes: Enchanted Path is Mollydooker's elite Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon blend which uses fruit grown on the winery's Gateway and Prime vineyards in McLaren Vale.  Barrel fermented and then aged in American (97%) and French (3%) oak, the final blend is a 66/34% split of Shiraz to Cabernet. The wine delivers classic characteristics of both varieties with the dark cassis fruit and eucalyptus from the Cab complimenting the spicy red fruit from the Shiraz. Fine tannins structure the blend very well and their controlled robustness suggests further development with another year or two of bottle aging. Drink 2013-2020.
