Winemaker's Notes:

Marquis Philips is an American-Australian collaboration, a joint project of owner Dan Philips of The Grateful Palate and winemakers Chris Ringland and Lisa Wetherell. The grapes for the label's red wines, including 100% Shiraz and Cabernets as well as blends, come largely from regions south of Adelaide—Padthaway, McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek, on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

"Broad and ripe, not heavy, this feels almost like a big, floating ship, emanating ripe cherry, blackberry, toasty oak and hints of smoke and licorice as the finish sails on and on. Tannins are well-resolved. Drink now through 2014."

My Notes:

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.
