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.

The best Merlot I have ever tried. Makes me a renewed believer in the varietal.

This compact merlot has light, brisk flavors of cherries and floral tannins that last. It feel complete, ready to enjoy with prime rib.

Well-structured, with a tight band of cedar, herb, tobacco and dried currant. Presents itself in a tight, restrained manner, ending with firm tannins and a measure of complexity. Drink now through 2009.
