Editorial Reviews for Marquis Philips Shiraz
A bit off on the nose with both lactic and acetic accents to the bright, juniper-accented aromas of sweet black fruit, peach tea and grilled meats. Velvety and sweet in the mouth, with good freshness to the core of plummy fruit. This is fairly weighty and while it’s reasonably well-balanced, it is a monotone wine that finishes a bit abruptly. 86pts
Deep full body, lots of fruit, silky, molasses, liquorice. At a wine tasting of Syrahs (comparing Australian, Washington, and Rhone Valley), this was the favorite, and by far the cheapest. It's the perfect example of a value wine. (Not for the French inclined. Definitely not subtle.)

Rating 88; This wine borders on a port wine in taste. Alcohol is 16%!!! it still has a remaining sweetness that borders on Portwine. The nose is Poerfull with berries and raisins. I never had a wine like this. Some of the guest hated it some liked it. It showed best when it was consumed with ice cream. The sweet taste of icecream made the wine taste almost dry. Get one and try it yourself
it was okay. nice fig/prune notes. a little too gummy or sugary in the middle for me. better on day two.
My favorite bargain red - and lower in price this year than last! This is possibly my favorite vintage yet. Amazing depth and density of fruit for any wine, much less one in this price range. Lip-smacking blackberry and black raspberry fruit - like a black raspberry pie - on top of subtle chocolate, vanilla, and roasted herb flavors. Very rich and satisfying texture, and the fruit is deep enough to basically bury the 16% alcohol. I don't know how they succeed in making a wine this good and getting it all the way from Australia to the U.S. for this price, but it is multiple-case-worthy.
Upon opening I noted the aroma of prunes and was a little worried. But upon sipping it was very fruity with nice complexity. The high alcohol content (16%) paired well with food. I look forward to enjoying it with a nice steak on day two.
Excellent finish very full bodied. Great with a tuna steak or dark chocolate dessert.

Cut from the same mold as the Sarahrsquo;s Blend, the inky/blue/purple-colored 2005 Shiraz offers up sweet, rich aromas of blackberries, toasty wood, licorice, and a touch of pepper. This dense, opulent, fleshy, full, rich, mouthfilling, concentrated Shiraz should drink well for 3ndash;4 years.
The 2004 Shiraz reveals blackberry, tar, pepper, and toasty oak characteristics in its spicy, rich, deep, voluptuous personality. It will drink well for 1ndash;3 years.
The ripe, juicy, fleshy 2003 Shiraz. Dark ruby/purple-colored, with blackberry, charcoal, and fig characteristics, this medium to full-bodied, potent, mouthfilling red can be enjoyed over the next 2ndash;4 years.
Wine Tasting Notes The wine has a rich, dense blackberry jam aroma with spicy vanillin, cedar and fruitcake notes. Beautifully textured, it explodes in the mouth with sweet berry, rich mocha, vanilla spice, hints of pepper and a big, soft, tannic finish.
