External Reviews for Marquis Phil Cabernet Sauvignon
The classic 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, offers tell-tale aromas and flavors of black currants, high class cigar smoke, and herbs. Medium to full-bodied with dense, layered fruit flavors, an attractive suppleness and an easy-going style with admirable depth, it should drink well for 2ndash;3 years.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was barrel-fermented and aged in French oak for 12 months. Purple colored, it offers aromas of cedar, spice box, plum, black currant and blackberry. Full-bodied, with spicy black fruit flavors, there is enough structure to support 2ndash;3 years of additional bottle aging. Drink this well-balanced, lengthy Cabernet through 2016.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is a much smaller scaled, more evolved Cabernet than the 2002. Its dark ruby color is followed by classic notes of tobacco leaf, creme de cassis, and a touch of toasty, smoky oak. With a medium-bodied, supple finish, it should drink well for 3ndash;4 years.
With respect to the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, I have not tasted such a great value in Cabernet Sauvignon since the 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon from Marietta. There are 4,300 cases of the 100% Cabernet from Padthaway and Middleton. Barrel-fermented in 100% new American oak and then matured in both French and American wood for twelve months, it possesses an opaque black/purple color that is thick to the rim. The classic bouquet is cregrave;me de cassis, licorice, and spice box is followed by a full-bodied, opulent effort with super-rich fruit as well as a long, lush finish. This 2001 will keep for a decade, but it is impossible to resist at present.
Glass-staining ruby. Ripe cherry and plum jam on the nose. Fat, sweet dark fruit flavors are a touch syrupy but dusty tannins add welcome grip and focus. Finishes a bit short, with a jolt of sweet, liqueur-like cherry and blackberry flavors. Irsquo;d have liked more structure and shape. Tasting this collection of wines is always a hair-raising experience.
The outstanding 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon, like the Merlot, is produced primarily from McLaren Vale and Padthaway fruit. Yields on all these wines are restricted to about for tons of fruit per acre, low for wines at this price. The dense purple-colored Cabernet reveals classic aromas of cedar, tobacco leaf, and red as well as black currants. Creamy textured with noticable wood (it was aged in 80% American and 20% French oak, all one year old), it finishes with considerable glycerin, ripeness, and sweet tannin. One of the worldrsquo;s greatest values in Cabernet Sauvignon, it is tempting to say this delicious offering will last only 2ndash;3 years. Nevertheless, I would opt to drink this over the next 3ndash;4 years.
Sparky and Sarah Marquis, among Australiarsquo;s most in-demand consulting winemakers, partnered with American importer Dan Phillips a few years ago to create this brand, which is geared entirely for export to the United States. The wine is immensely appealing mdash; soft, supple and ripe in flavor.
