Marquis Philips Red Blend Sarah's Blend 2011
This is a beautiful integration of the three varieties. It's a joy to experience and taste the earthy spicy Merlot characters, the leafy berry fruits and firm structure from the Cabernet, and the chocolate and plum Shiraz flavors to finish. This harmony gives you a wine that is balanced, complex and has lots of fruit.
Good buy for a nice smooth red.
Nice color. Chocolate and currants on nose. Round wine, well balanced. Fruit forward with berries, spice, firm tannins, with long finish. Nice for the money 90pts
[Blind Syrah tasting] New world. Aussie? Jammy, light medicinal notes. Corny.
New world Style. Needs to open up a bit. Fruit forward, little light on the finish though does have perceptible tannins. Has class and drinks well on its own or with lighter foods.
Smooth, velvety wine. I agree with previous comments...it's on the berry, fruity side. Pleasant evening glass before bed...it was quite nice by itself. Might not be bold enough for some stronger dishes.

It is deep ruby/purple in color with full body, moderate acidity and soft, ripe tannins. This complex red offers a rich palate of blackberry, black currant, plum, fig, espresso and spice. Aged in French and American oak, it is nicely balanced to enjoy now and over the next 6-7 years. Rich flavors linger on the long, smooth finish.Enjoy Marquis Philips Sarah's Blend with BBQ ribs, steak, burgers, pastas, grilled chicken and cheeses.
The 2002 Sarahrsquo;s blend (a 6,000 case blend of 62% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Merlot) boasts an inky purple color, full body, great intensity, and plenty of toasty, smoky vanillin notes intermixed with hints of melted licorice, figs, plums, blackberries, and currants. Dense, low in acidity, and corpulent, it is a luscious southern Australian fruit bomb of considerable flesh and intensity. Readers seeking delicate, restrained, introspective, European-styled reds should look elsewhere. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.
One of my favorite Marquis Philips cuveacute;es is the 2005 Sarahrsquo;s Blend, a concoction of 60% Shiraz, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc fermented in wood and aged in both new and one-year-old French and American oak. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by aromas of flowers, spice box, blueberries, black currants, and smoky oak. Opulent, voluptuous, and full-bodied, with low acidity and sweet tannin, this is a blockbuster red that sells for a song. If you like fruit, flavor, and character, this is a big-time winner to drink over the next 3ndash;4 years.
The 2006 Sarahrsquo;s Blend is composed of 60% Shiraz, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It was barrel-fermented and aged in seasoned French oak for 12 months. Deep crimson-colored, it yields a complex aromatic array of cedar, spice box, clove, pepper, cassis, and blueberry. Full-bodied, fruit-driven, and intensely flavored, this layered blend has a 45-second finish. Drink it over the next 8 years.
The stunning (probably the best $15 wine I have ever tasted) 2001 Sarahrsquo;s Blend includes 48% Shiraz, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 24% Merlot. It boasts an opaque plum/purple color in addition to a stunningly sweet bouquet of ground pepper, blackberry liqueur, and toasty oak. Surprising nuances, full body, great purity, and opulent, super-concentrated mid-palate and finish, and a seamlessness that must be tasted to be believed emerge from this fresh, well-delineated red. Drink it over the next 3ndash;5 years, although my instincts suggest it will last longer.
Luscious and smooth blend of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot from famed producer Marquis Philips. Inky purple-black hue, almost opaque in the glass, with heady black fruit, blueberries and licorice aromas. Rich and deep on the palate, loaded with jammy fruit and spice flavors. Always a good buy.
