Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 62% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc.

Super ripe plum jam with dark chocolate richness, black currant and briar fruit on the nose. Soft, round and gentle with aromas of marzipan, complex black currant fruit, and hints of peppermint and smoky sweet vanilla. On the palate, ripe red berries, vibrant, soft and round, gentle medium bodied structure and black fruit are found. Long, integrated tannins and some oak lactone influence also exist.

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.
