The classic McLaren Vale blueberry & apparent sweet fruit is displayed beautifully in this wine. The key descriptor for 2006 Shiraz is "blueberries," like a big blueberry muffin with crème fraiche on top on a Sunday morning followed by a long nap, put that in liquid form and you've got 2006 Marquis Philips Shiraz.
"The 2006 Shiraz was barrel-fermented and aged in predominantly American oak for 12 months. It offers up fragrant aromas of cedar, smoke, tar, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, opulent, and structured, this intense, well-balanced Shiraz will evolve for 2-3 years and drink well through 2016. It is an excellent value."
