Marquis Philips S2 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007


Winemaker's Notes

Dark red with crimson hues and a purple rim. Lifted floral nose, plum jam and rhubarb. Luscious palate of vibrant, sweet-fruited black currant with hints of black tea, burnt toffee and raw coffee. A long grainy tannin finish.

The Wine Advocate

The 2007 MP Cabernet Sauvignon S2 spent 16 months in French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it emits enticing notes of cedar, leather, earth, black currant, and blackberry. Medium to full-bodied, this firm Cabernet has enough structure to evolve for several years. It has excellent depth, savory black fruit flavors, plenty of spice, and good length. This well-balanced effort should be at its best from 2010 to 2017.

Wine Spectator

This round red offers a silky texture to its ripe cherry, sage and white pepper flavors, which linger on the polished finish. Drink now through 2012.
