Markham Cabernet Sauvignon the Philanthropist Yountville Napa Valley 2008

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Dark nose. Red berry, leaning black berry. Touch of dark chocolate and earth. Also, aromas of cherry, currant. Big minerality on the palate. Dry. Bold tannin. Blackberry, cassis, currant and big acid. Can age well I think. Bitter chocolate, cigar box, minerals and dark berry. 88 pts. 5/10/13 at winery

Winemaking is a Del Bondio family tradition. Bryan's grandparents settled in the Napa Valley over 100 years ago. 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. When you visit the Winery you may run into Bryan's children and possible future Markham employees, Lauren, Lina & Peter. Read less

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.
