    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."

    Fabulous wine, with or without food. STRONG fruit nose to start, then mellows out substantially. Still very young, fairly strong tannins until it has been open for a while. I tried it earlier and reordered; excellent value.

    This wasn't the traditional Shiraz I am used to in a good way. It's very robust and hearty. My gold standard is a 2005 Yangarra Shiraz and this bottle got a high rating (92) so I really wanted to try it. It's delicious with deep berry flavors. Not as good as the Yangarra but everyone's pallat is different! I recommend!

    First off, it is a good wine. Since it is still young, leaving it open for a while will help tame the taste. However, when you compare the price, there is a better Shiraz out there: Annie's Lane 2004 Shiraz. When I compared this wine with Annie's Lane 2004 Shiraz, there was no comparison. Annies won out on taste, flavor, bouquet, and price. Perhaps they saved the better grapes to make the S9, which costs around $45.

    This Marquis Phillips did mot have the body as the other two reds offered by Marquis Phillips. When open the body stayed the same, the other offerings became fuller.
