Winemaker's Notes:

The appearance is opaque red-black with a purple rim. The aroma is of rich brown sugar, prunes, black fruits, earth and mineral. The palate is dense, silky, rich and super-ripe. Bitumen, molasses and vanilla. Long, soft structured 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.
