External Reviews for Marquis Philips Cabernet Sauvignon
Sparky and Sarah Marquis, among Australia'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 - soft, supple and ripe in flavor.
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 2-3 years of additional bottle aging. Drink this well-balanced, lengthy Cabernet through 2016.
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. I'd have liked more structure and shape. Tasting this collection of wines is always a hair-raising experience.
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 2-3 years.
Soft, supple, ripe and generous with its currant, cherry and wild berry aromas and flavors, lingering nicely on the spicy finish. Immensely appealing stuff. Drink now through 2010.
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 crème 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.
Slightly dull medium red. Aromas of bitter cherry, cinnamon, herbs and eucalyptus; slightly stewy. Then reasonably ripe but somewhat heavy and lacking in clarity; began with stewed fruit flavors but grew a bit fresher in the glass. Finishes with decent sweetness and structure.
