Marquis Philips Shiraz 45807 2006

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

A notable value, the 2008 Marquis Philips Shiraz displays a slightly charred top note from its stay in American oak, but also a pleasant mix of boysenberry, coffee and vanilla flavors. It's creamy and supple, with a soft, mocha-tinged finish. Drink now-2012.

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.

A collaboration of American and Australian winemakers, this unctuous effort is a classic example of a new world Shiraz. Don't be put off if the nose is slightly vegetal to start. All you need are a couple of swirls in your glass and the bright red fruits of raspberry and cranberry come through. The palate is dominated by blueberry and pepper. The tannins are very present but sweet, accompanied by glycerin and balanced with a fair amount of acidity, which helps carry the long finish. Although the term is overused by some wine critics, I would call this a hedonistic fruit bomb to be enjoyed with friends or given as an impressive gift to the host.

Medium ruby. Roasted plum, blackberry, kirsch and fruitcake on the big, rich nose. full and broad on the palate, with sweet berry flavors and notes of dates, dried cherry and mocha. The clinging finish shows a sweet, spicy, slightly peppery cherry character.

This vintner consistently produces wines of prodigious results, and their Shiraz is no exception. Ripe aromas of blackberry and blueberry practically leap out of the glass, developing in intensity on the palate — balanced and hinting at smoke. The finish is drawn out to an impressive degree with a whisper of spice. An outstanding value; you’ll be the hit of the party when you bring the Marquis.

Cut from the same mold as the Sarah'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 3-4 years.

Lithe, polished and appealing for its plum and berry flavors, lingering gently on the generous finish behind a veil of creamy oak. Drink now.
