A note of oak comes through, though modest it's there and creates a more creamy/elegant SB with the sharpness twinged just a bit. Melon, citrus and lemongrass notes ride another mainstay - minerality. It's refreshing and will last for a couple of years yet. Paul

Bright red berry fruits highlight this IGT blend. This plenty of anise, red cedar, a hint of tobacco with a zest note and medium tannins marry up to good acidity flowing to a good lengthy aftertaste. It's ready - drink now. Paul

It is wonderful when these age and you get to the stage that the black and blueberry notes combine with butterscotch, a slight peppery note and a chocolate following. Lip smacking good....with French vanilla ice cream, chocolate brownies and the port drizzled over them. Drink now - Paul

This has an odd presence for a bordeaux blend. Actually it makes me think of some pre-1997 Iyalian wines. Although there is accompanying fruit, it's more earth, spice, red cedar, anise and snappy acidity and tannins. It's a little different but it is good. drink now - Paul

At first I was a little disappointed but as the wine opened the cherry, spice and honeyed notes started to rise up and with a little swirling it got going at the it developed into the Top 100 WS wine that it should. The honey note was particularly satisfying at the end - drink or hold. Paul

Lithe and with a straw note and a slight separation ring this provides many citrus and melon noted with bright acidity that provides a refreshing and uplifting finish. Go ahead and buy 6 or 8 bottles of this. Paul

I stored this bottle just to see how it would hang. Nothing special, it's just that I like Markham and this bottling received less positive hype than most. A brooding dark juice with excellent viscosity, blackberry and dark cherry, chocolate and spice. Married completely now this finishes balanced and seamless. Paul

A real surprise. I bought several of these a few years ago just for nights of bbq, several friends over and what not. This remained buried in the cellar until last night. Good idea - glad I didn't plan it that way. Large blackberry and briary along with red plum and dirt really explode out of the glass. A leggy, smooth flowing juice flows a leaves an excellent lingering aftertate. Drink (?) now if you have it. Paul

Reaaly lasted well and developed better than the more heralded '07. Blackberry and a tart choke cherry, with spine and chocolate on the nose lead to a plate that is somewhat dry with slightly chewy tannins and balanced aciditty. Drink now Paul

Blackberries and musk on the nose. At first taste dryness lingers withe a small juiciness coming through. A chokecherry dryness lingers with a light and subtle flavor.

The taste and he nose contains dark berries, a little spice, and hints of chocolate. There are pleasant tannins in the finish which didn't linger long.

On the nose cherries and blackberry, the taste has both along with a spiciness and chocolate. This would pair very well with a heavy pasta dish or any type of steak.

The nose finds chocolate, cherries, and pepper.The taste reflects the same along with a hint of coffee, nicely juicy from the alcohol; the finish contains tannins that really pull the flavors together.
