Winemaker's Notes:

"The S2 Cabernet Sauvignon, from relatively young vines (1,500 cases produced; 100% Cabernet Sauvignon), exhibits elegance as well as structure, characteristics of this vintage in South Australia. Notes of cedar, spice box, licorice, red currants, sweet black fruits, and toasty oak are found in this plump, rich, graceful, well-delineated Cabernet. Aged in a combination of both new and old French and American oak for 13 months, it should drink well for 5-8 years."

About Marquis Phillips:

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.
