Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Opaque red-black, scarlet rim.

Aroma: Dense black currant jam. Hint of pickled kalamata olive, mineral edge, whiff of vanillin.

Palate: Closed, dark chocolate, raisins. Massive depth, chewy, yet soft, lingering tannins. Hint of licorice.

With air contact time the oak vanillin develops more of a cedar quality.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is purple/black-colored with a nose of toasty black currants, spice box, and licorice. Velvety, sweet, and opulent on the palate, it has plenty of concentration, enough structure for balance, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. "

Marquis Philips is a collaboration between American Dan Philips and Australian winemakers to make the most delicious, power-packed wines on the planet.

The winemakers aim to create wines that are pleasure-giving, dark, ripe, sweet, gulpable, loud, yet subtle, sweet and gentle with a long finish, elegant, Turley-esque, and powerful.
