Marquis Phillips '9' McLaren Vale Shiraz 2001
Consistent notes with earlier tastings of this ten year old shiraz. Super ripe and rich Amarone-like raisin scents and spice flavors overpower the forward blackberry liquor, ripe plum fruits, tar and licorice - much more so than earlier tastings. Not nearly as polished as other vintages.
RM 88 points. WS92 RM92
Tasted w/ L at home with fruit and artisan cheeses.
