Markham Merlot Napa Valley 2001
This Reserve Merlot enchants with aromas of dark chocolate, black raspberries and layers of toasty oak. Velvety tannins weave elegantly around creamy berry and cola flavors and are complemented by intriguing tobacco notes. This wine's ripe texture and firm structure can provide immediate enjoyment as well as reward with a few years in the cellar. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE SPECIAL RESERVE PROMOTIONS IN CURRENT RELEASES TO RECEIVE 30% OFF WHEN YOU BUY AT LEAST 6 BOTTLES.
This was a great selection, very bright raspberry jam, big bold fruit, little spice notes on the finish and a hint of vanilla... If you like cabernet, you'll love this merlot.
External Reviews for Markham Merlot Napa Valley
Aromas of sour cherries, toasted hazelnuts and vanilla cream might sound decadent enough for dessert, but yoursquo;ll be surprised how perfectly this rich wine works with dinner. Stash a few bottles away to experience what time does to its dense, velvety structure, but by all means enjoy some now for its precious, blackberry fruit.
