Hear that this wine will be gone soon...such a shame. We love it for parties. It's a great bang for the buck!

My five sons and I enjoyed this wine very much and were unanimous on the rating. I will be buying this wine again.

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. R Wines is a new company founded by importer and marketing genius, Dan Philips, along with co-owner, renowned winemaker, Chris Ringland. Winemakers for R Wines are Chris Ringland, Lisa Wetherell, Andrew Hercock, and John Hughes. It encompasses four familiar labels, Marquis Philips, 3 Rings, Roogle, and Bitch, along with 13 others created especially for R Wines. Needless to say, the packaging of these wines is amazingly creative but, more importantly, what is in the bottle consistently over-delivers from low-end to high-end. The Marquis Philips wines have established a six year track record of delivering a big bang for the buck. The wines are now made by a team put together by Dan Philips and Chris Ringland with absolutely no change in quality. Starting with the 2006 vintage, however, all of the fruit is sourced from McLaren Vale. The other change of note is that Merlot has been dropped from the program, primarily because of the difficulty of finding Merlot good enough to merit the M-P label.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 89Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 Cabernet receives a similar wood treatment to the Merlot, resulting in a big, thick, juicy, fresh, classic South Australian red offering bold, exuberant, blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with striking vanillin and pain grille characteristics. With superb texture as well as a full-bodied, powerful finish, this amazing Cabernet should drink well for 4-5 years.Wine Tasting NotesThis Cabernet exhibits definitive varietal characters of berry fruits, black & white pepper, cedar and cigar box, with a layer of dark chocolate adding to the complexity. As this wine ages the fresh raspberry characters will mature into darker boysenberry and blackberry characters with layers of brandy laced chocolate fondue flavors.

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.

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.

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.

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 world's greatest values in Cabernet Sauvignon, it is tempting to say this delicious offering will last only 2-3 years. Nevertheless, I would opt to drink this over the next 3-4 years.
