Markham the Philanthropist Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

COLOR Deep Ruby Red AROMA Aromas of caramel, dark chocolate and vanilla TASTE Flavors are smooth and dense, almost like a rich, flourless chocolate cake surrounded with ripe, blackberry sauce. Big tannins are supple but hold on tightly at the end.

His father, Al, worked at Inglenook for 45 years and taught his son about the unique and challenging art and science of winemaking. His mother, Marie, also spent 40 years at Inglenook. Bryan's formal education was completed in 1977 when he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Viticulture from the University of California, Davis. In 1977 Bryan joined Markham Vineyards as General Manager, and in January of 1988 was promoted to President.

This is wide open on the nose with dark fruit topped with plenty of spicy oak notes and accents of vanilla and eucalyptus. Broad and appealing on the palate, this shows some fairly dry tannins, but they don't detract from the bright red cherry, cranberry fruit of the mid palate. This does turn dark and powerful on the backend and through the moderately long finish, which shows a nice return of fresh red plum fruit. 91pts

Bruce Markham purchased vineyards in Yountville, Oak Knoll and Calistoga and the old Laurent winery, which was operating as a cooperative at the time. In 1978, he founded Markham Vineyards and the old Laurent winery was reborn.
