TN: 2002 Marquis Philips Shiraz South Eastern Australia

I know I've read about this on several other threads, but I had to post my own tasting notes!

This was decanted only about 30 minutes prior to serving. Deep purplish hue. Penetrating nose showing boysenberry, spice and sweetish wood. Tasted slightly hot (showing its 15.5% Eek), but balanced with very Shiraz-like flavors of pepper, licorice, huckleberry, green tea and a hint of smoke. Great mouthfeel and a good finish. It's all held together with a creamy sweetness. 91+ points.

I was very surprised when I went to brush my teeth at how dark my tongue was! This even threw a nice chunk of sediment in the decanter. Excellent QPR!

Cheers!
