Rating: ***+ 2006 Mollydooker The Scooter Merlot, McLaren Vale, Australia

LIVE Review: The Scooter is mid deep red in the glass. The aroma is one of gentle plums and cream, plus some alcohol heat, and only a touch of bright berry. On the palate is a meaty, bold red middle. Clean but fairly rapid and simple finish.

This wine was tasted as part of a Mollydooker Tasting Dinner - 2006 Vintage.

  1. Not very Merlot-like, but offers a nice core of fruit with earth and vanillin oak in the finish. (***+)
