Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2004 Shiraz reveals blackberry, tar, pepper, and toasty oak characteristics in its spicy, rich, deep, voluptuous personality."
-Wine Advocate

This wine has a distinct varietal nose, with incredibly rich plum, rhubarb and blackcurrant fruits and is perfumed like a bunch of red roses. The palate is spicy, with intense chocolate and licorice characters. The wine has a firm structure with lovely robust oak and fine grain tannins.

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.
