Wine Spectator 92 points - Dark and rich, supple and silky, brimming with blackberry and black cherry flavors that show a hint of pomegranate as the finish wraps gently around the fruit. This has a wonderful open texture to let the flavors sing. Drink now through 2016.—H.S. (Dec 19 2012)
This joyous wine was named after the Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy, Sarah and Sparky’s son, Luke.
Just wait till you taste this wine! Sarah and Sparky blended it last week. They let me have a taste after they had decided on the blend. I couldn't believe it. There were 3 major components, but the blend was exponentially better than any of them. I don’t understand how that happens. It had the best features of all three of the components – depth and complexity from one, velvety unctuousness from another, intensity and color from the third, and then a something extra - a life force of its own. Magic!
We are so happy to be able to bring you this new wine, which we believe is a great wine at an affordable price, perfect for celebrating, sharing with friends, or relishing on your own.
