Delicious, deep red, berries, full-flavoured, a hint of liquorice, warm, welcoming, mouth-filling, smooth… all words that sprang to mind the moment I opened this bottle of Enchanted Path by Mollydooker and brought my glass to my lips.
The 2012 Enchanted Path is a creamy blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon that screams to be consumed with food. Delightfully playful with a little kick of acidity, the T-Man thought this delicious berry-filled wine would go perfectly with a plate of spiced duck whilst my vote went towards a naturally flavoursome bowl of fresh pasta with a rich, basil-infused tomato and chilli sauce.
Allocated 92 points by the Wine Advocate and 93 points by the Wine Spectator, this wine swirls thickly in the glass and warms the cockles of your eyes with it’s rich, deep red colour. Tannins help to coat your tongue, giving the Enchanted Path a velvety mouthfeel that does for your tastebuds what a lullaby sung softly to you by Louis Armstrong would do to your ears.
