Markham Merlot 2013


SKU 13680


The winery and vineyards of Markham Vineyards date back to 1874, making it one of Napa Valley's pioneer sites. Bordeaux immigrant Jean Laurent built the stone cellar which is still at the heart of the winery, and Bruce Markham purchased the old Laurent winery in 1978. Focusing on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the winery's rich Bordeaux heritage thrives. Today Markham has 350 acres of vineyards from a full range of microclimates. This Merlot has aromas of violets, blackberries and Tahitian vanilla leading to a fleshy, round, juicy palate. Pair with grilled lamb burgers and portabella mushrooms or with rib eye steaks.
