Marquis Philips Shiraz Mclaren Vale Integrity 2007
The superb Shiraz 9 includes the wine that would have been earmarked for that flamboyant cuvee. The rich full-bodied opulent Shiraz 9 boasts abundant amounts of concentrated blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with smoke camphor and tar notes. It is a powerful Shiraz (16% alcohol) so those looking for restraint and delicate European-styled reds should steer clear of this monster. It should drink well for at least a decade.
Fruity with very little tannin. Tasted at Geneva wine tasting 4/18/2010.
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.
This is a very good Shiraz to have on hand and made by an excellent winery!

The 2006 Shiraz was aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. It is purple-colored and offers up a big whiff of cedar, blueberry, blackberry, and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, ripe and sweet, it has enough structure to improve for 2-3 years in the bottle but who is going to defer their gratification? Drink it over the next 4-6 years.
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.
