Took a while to open up and settle down from the heat of the alcohol (16%) but then showed strong with powerful vanilla burnt oak. Bunch of sediments towards the end. Vertically tasted with the 2002 Shiraz 9 and the 2002 was the fave. Glad we drank it now cause i dont think its peaked.

The 2003 Shiraz 9 is a flamboyant, opaque purple-colored, full-bodied effort revealing notes of espresso roast, chocolate, smoked meats, and toasty American oak. Fleshy, full-throttle, pure, and intensely concentrated, it is a classic South Australian Shiraz to enjoy during its first 7-8 years of life.   The highly respected South Australian viticulturists/winemakers, Sarah and Sparky Marquis, in partnership with their importer, Dan Philips of the Grateful Palate, successfully launched the inexpensive line of Marquis Philips wines several years ago, creating something of a monster because of their enormous crowd appeal. While 2003 is a lighter vintage than its predecessors, these offerings have turned out nicely. The handful of consumers who deemed 2002 too concentrated for such inexpensive wines will be delighted to learn that the 2003s are slightly lighter, but still loaded with character as well as flavor. They possess heavy duty, exuberant fruit, ripeness, and considerable personality.

If you like the classic intense Australian Shiraz then this is a perfect bottle to enjoy now. Thick dark purple color with a dark cherry and peppery spice bouquet and a good dose of oak. Full bodied and rich with jammy fruits, chocolate and meaty flavors on the palate. Long lasting finish.

I found even after 2 hours of breathing there was a certain astringent quality to this shiraz. Full bodied in nature with flavors of pitted fruits esp, plum and dark cherry.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
