Food Pairings for Marquis Philips Shiraz
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.)
I really liked the berry qualities of this red. It was an easy drinking Shiraz that I hope to find again before it disappears.
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.

The Baby Roogle Shiraz is an expression of exactly what it is named: a baby version of the flagship Marquis Philips Shiraz. Featuring a stunning label design and the same explosive, creamy, dark and c
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.
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 2006 Shiraz was barrel-fermented and aged in predominantly American oak for 12 months. It offers up fragrant aromas of cedar, smoke, tar, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, opulent, and structured, this intense, well-balanced Shiraz will evolve for 2ndash;3 years and drink well through 2016. It is an excellent value.
Full, round and mouthfilling, with cherry and cooked plum flavors, finishing with touches of chocolate and toast. Drink it while itrsquo;s still fresh. Drink now.
The exciting, saturated inky purple-colored 2002 Shiraz reveals a gorgeous perfume of blackberry liqueur, white flowers, vanilla, and a hint of figs. Opulent, voluptuous, and sexy, it is both flamboyant and immensely satisfying. This big, silky, flesh bomb should drink well for 3ndash;4 years. For the price, it offers unbelievable value.
91 Points - The Wine Advocate "The 2008 Shiraz offers up aromas of cigar box, damp earth, smoked meat, bacon, and blueberry. Packed with flavor on the palate, it is full-bodied, round, and altogether pleasure-bent. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."
