Mollydooker Wines-The Boxer-Shiraz-Australia-2008-$24.99-A nose of bold fruit and spice with noticeable alcohol,  dark black purple in color.  A bold full bodied over the top Shiraz, I really like this wine when it’s a few years old, when it’s young the alcohol overwhelms the fruit, plum, blueberry, bacon.  I have tried The Boxer in 2005, 06, 07 and now 08, wait a couple years and this will calm down.           RP-91              WS-91               CR-4                Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
