Marquis Philips Grenache Mclaren Vale 2007
Great value-driven burger wine. Lots of polish with sweet fruit and a long finish. If you hate the fruit bombs, you'll despise it. If you like them, this one's a little different...less reliance on the oak, more on the sweetness.
Rich & intense, with dark cherry, blue & black berry, and firm mineral notes. Smoky, vanillin oak comes through on the finish. Well-balanced & perfect for b-b-q. 93pts.
This wine was very good with no decanting. Bought it at a Binny's for $13.99. It was not a dark red but definitely not weak in color. It was relatively dry given the price and grape, but before I get held accountable to that comment I want to try it with something other than burgers. Overall, for the price, I thought it was a very good wine.
