#10: Molly Dooker Gigglepot 2011: Cabernet Sauvignon. 2011 Gigglepot is a gorgeous wine which is distinctly Cabernet, from the intensity of dark fruits to the direct tannins and fresh acidity. Completely balanced in every way, it has layers and layers of sweet fruit rolling over dark chocolate, and a rich creamy palate. It ends with anise spice and lingering coffee flavors. Stunning!
