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.
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.
Round and spicy, a polished style with spicy oak wrapping around the currant and tar flavors, finishing silky. Drink now through 2006.
