Winemaker's Notes

Number 64 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

This 2005 Shiraz shows generous and concentrated fruit with its flavors of dense dark chocolate, licorice, and spice. 100% barrel fermented in new and 1 year old American oak and barrel matured for 12 months. It has silky, smooth tannins and shows creamy developed characters and is overwhelmingly, mouthfillingly delicious.

"Cut from the same mold as the Sarah's Blend, the inky/blue/purple-colored 2005 Shiraz offers up sweet, rich aromas of blackberries, toasty wood, licorice, and a touch of pepper. This dense, opulent, fleshy, full, rich, mouthfilling, concentrated Shiraz should drink well for 3-4 years.""- The Wine Advocate"

This wine is fruity and smooth. Really a great shiraz. Even my husband, who doesn't usually like reds, likes this one. Try the Marquis Philips Shiraz 9 as a special treat if you like this wine!

Very fruity, rich, and so dark it's almost brownish-purple, this wine goes great with dark chocolate. We had it with Valrhona 71% cocoa. I'm guessing it handles steak well, too.

This wine is very drinkable, but doesn't really stand out in any area. It doesn't have the depth of flavors of a very good Shiraz/Syrah. For the special price, it isn't a bad deal, but at $20, there are much better out there.
