For 15 years old, this is holding on. All the tannins have resolved. There is a dominant cherry and orange peel character.

Enjoying working through the back catalogue of Sarah and Sparky Marquis. This enterprise with their involvement broke up in 2005 when the Marquis's left to form Mollydooker. Dan Philips continued on for a couple of more years and but ultimately, this label failed in late part of the 2000s. And now, we learn this week that the fractures continue with the divorce of Sarah and Sparky. She has claimed control of Mollydooker while Sparky can't put out anything until 2018.

As soon as I had my first sip, this was classic Marquis. Amazingly, there was some heat here but this quickly dissipated. Long legs and maroon core. Black current and leathery from age. Tannins are beautifully integrated at this point. Amazingly, I think this still has some life in it as it was probably crafted for immediate consumption rather than 20 years of cellaring.

Holding its fruit well, thought leaning towards your cooked fruits; prunes especially. Raspberry jam, black currants, Toffee, dates, caramel and oak make for the rest of the nose.

One of the great bargains. This was a failed export order to the US. I bought 3 dozen approx 5 years ago for around $6.90 per bottle. This is the 2nd last. The Marquis name in this suggests a connection with Molly Dooker which leads to the luscious fruit palate of this wine. I have had $50 wines not as good as this. So ripe it tastes more Shiraz than Cabernet.

I had the 2001 on 5/8/15. Not bad for an inexpensive wine. Tastes of blackberry
