Winemaker's Notes:

The classic McLaren Vale blueberry & apparent sweet fruit is displayed beautifully in this wine. The key descriptor for 2006 Shiraz is "blueberries," like a big blueberry muffin with crème fraiche on top on a Sunday morning followed by a long nap, put that in liquid form and you've got 2006 Marquis Philips Shiraz.

"The 2006 Shiraz was barrel-fermented and aged in predominantly American oak for 12 months. It offers up fragrant aromas of cedar, smoke, tar, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, opulent, and structured, this intense, well-balanced Shiraz will evolve for 2-3 years and drink well through 2016. It is an excellent value."

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.
