Markham Merlot Napa Valley 2005
My first true Merlot tasting. Only a touch of pepper on the nose. 2/5 tannins and acid. Very fruity, almost citrusy flavor at the front, with a nice smooth finish and a bit of vanilla in the middle. Went well with chicken in spaghetti sauce...could see pairing with fish in a Caribbean-type sauce or fruits...
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Markham Merlot Napa Valley
Ripe fruit and a weightless feel in the mouth set this Merlot apart. It's from a great Napa vintage and made in a friendly style that allows its red cherry flavors to shine brilliantly. A spectacular Merlot that will help you out in just about any red wine situation.
The Markham Merlot has black cherry and candied apple aromas that carry over to the palate in a delicate, crisp manner; cleansing aftertaste.
