Marquis Philips Shiraz Mclaren Vale Integrity 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate # 173 Oct 2007 Jay Miller (92-95) Drink 2010 - 2022 The 2006 Shiraz 9 was tasted from a barrel sample. It has been barrel-fermented in new French and American oak barriques and hogsheads where it has been aging for 14 months (with another 2 months to go prior to bottling). It delivers an alluring bouquet of pain grille, smoke, mocha, espresso, and blue fruits. This is followed by a full-bodied, personality-filled Shiraz with blueberry, blackberry liqueur, licorice, and a hint of chocolate emerging on the palate. Opulent, sweet, and lengthy, it will evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 12-15 years. R Wines is a new company founded by importer and marketing genius, Dan Philips, along with co-owner, renowned winemaker, Chris Ringland.

Very dark color, with concentrated fruit and spice flavors. Complex and nicely balanced. This is a lot of wine for the money.

I did not like this much, although it does have a 92 WA rating. First of all, it had a nose of sour cherries, petroleum, and reminded me of the cheap in-flight tiny bottles of wine. I thought it had a rusty taste to it with some bitter aftertones. It did get better at day 3. However, I can think of other 'go to' wines at this price point that I'd enjoy drinking more - Chakana, Red Diamond, Thorne Clark, to name a few.

Dark, ripe, hot fruit nose. Blackberries on the palate -- very rich mouthfeel with rough tannins but a short finish. Try with grilled meats -- it's a hearty wine.

too extracted and takes too long to open up.

Decanted 1 hour. This is a big wine! Loads of blue and black fruit, both on the nose and mid-palate. Very jammy, with pepper and mocha flavors. Quite enjoyable, would buy again.

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.

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.

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.

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

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. Itrsquo;s creamy and supple, with a soft, mocha-tinged finish. Drink nowndash;2012.

A collaboration of American and Australian winemakers, this unctuous effort is a classic example of a new world Shiraz. Donrsquo;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.

Spicy, generous, a bit rustic in style but nicely fleshed out, with olive-scented cherry and tar flavors that linger on the slightly hot finish. Drink now through 2008.
