Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Opaque red-black, scarlet rim.
Aroma: Plums, prunes, milk chocolate, bitumen.
Palate: Dark plum jam. Freshly baked chocolate cake. Rich, mouth-filling, slightly chewy tannins.
With air contact time, black forest chocolate cake becomes more evident on the aroma.

Critical Acclaim

"The purple/black 2008 Sarah's Blend is composed of 63% Shiraz, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Notes of smoke, espresso, damp earth, spice box, and assorted black fruits lead to a full-bodied, already complex, rich wine with loads of ripe fruit. The finish is long, smooth, and filled with flavor. "

I currently have bottles of Sarah's blend 2005, 2006 and 2007 in my wine cave. I love them....especially the 05. I just got 2 bottles of the 2008 vintage.....I thought I was drinking Manischewitz! Maybe I have a bad batch? Share you thoughts please!

Marquis Philips is a collaboration between American Dan Philips and Australian winemakers to make the most delicious, power-packed wines on the planet. Marquis Philips began with a simple goal: to control the entire winemaking process, soup to nuts, from concept to vineyard, to market, to wine style, to price. 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.
