Winemaker's Notes:

This wine was 100% barrel fermented in new and 1 year old oak (30% French, 70% American oak.) and barrel matured for 12 months. The 2005 wines show generous and concentrated fruit and this Cabernet is a great example with its flavors of blueberries and cassis. It has silky, smooth tannins resulting from utilizing age-old cap management techniques. The wine shows some cedary, cigar box oak influence along with its bold fruit expression.

"Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 Cabernet receives a similar wood treatment to the Merlot, resulting in a big, thick, juicy, fresh, classic South Australian red offering bold, exuberant, blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with striking vanillin and pain grille characteristics. With superb texture as well as a full-bodied, powerful finish, this amazing Cabernet should drink well for 4-5 years." - The Wine Advocate"

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.
