Spicy aromas leap from the glass at first pouring, showing a dense concentration of dark fruits, including plumb and dark berries creating a liqueur-like center surrounded by hints of floral, earth and vegetable fragrances. The richly layered aromas intermingle with wafts of pepper and beets as the wine airs. The palate opens with thick, chewy, spicy black fruits and dark chocolate, laced with peppery vegetal flavors of beets and cream of tomato soup. Firm tannins support the heavy fruit and give grip to the mouthfeel. Warm, earthy, and fruit-filled, with an easy, silky, salivating finish. The wine doesn’t evolve much over three hours, but it doesn’t lose ground either. It keeps its zing, and is a great value.
Rich earthy Red. This is a wine that makes you want to drink it everyday. Perfect with a smooth buttery cheese. Perfect Red to keep on hand.

Rich in texture and flavor, with minty, creamy, vanilla and spice notes weaving through the basic black cherry fruit, echoing nicely on the fuzzy-grained finish. Drink now through 2004.
Marquis Philips Merlot 2008 and all other wine from Marquis Philips are available for immediate delivery and discounted prices from CheaperCigars.com. We also carry wide variety of wine from Australia and across the globe.
On the lighter side, pretty currant and caramel flavors that linger on the fine-grained finish. Drink now.
Crisp and vivid, with juicy blackberry and currant fruit at the center, aromatic with earth and herbs that carry over into the fine grained, minerally finish. An Aussie Merlot with real character. Drink now through 2008.
Merlot is a tough varietal to harness in Australia, and much of it is vegetal and unattractive. However, Marquis Philipsrsquo; 2004 Merlot is a tasty, dark ruby-hued example with sweet white chocolate characteristics intermixed with notions of road tar, black cherries, and currants. Supple-textured, medium-bodied, and luscious, it can be enjoyed over the next 2ndash;3 years.
The sexy, plump, seductive, medium-bodied 2003 Merlot offers aromas and flavors of mocha, bay leaves, and berry fruit in a soft, supple-textured style. Drink it over the next 1ndash;3 years.
These red wine are unreal in terms of their quality, flavor intensity, and overall complexity as well as their potentialhellip; I am not a fan of New World Merlot, but Marquis Philipsrsquo; 2001 Merlot (a 100% Merlot from both Padthaway and McLaren Vale that was aged one year in old oak) is outstanding. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of vanilla, black cherries, mocha, smoke, and a hint of chocolate. Dense, textured, medium to full-bodied, with low acidity and luscious fruit, this is a sweetheart of a Merlot.
