|There is plenty of drinking enjoyment yet again with the release of the 2005 Marquis Philips Shiraz. The wine shows its usual opaque purple ruby core - color that oozes with richness! On the nose the wine has aromas of jammy blackberry and peppery spice along with smoky toasty oak. One of the things I like about this wine is its mouth feel - rich and fleshy. Plenty of ripe berry fruit flavor covers the palate from front to back. It keeps its balance with fresh acidity and rounded integrated tannins. It parts with a persistent finish and is oh, so delicious.
