Markham Merlot Napa Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark Ruby color. Layers of cola, root beer, vanilla and mocha aromas. Ripe cherry flavors are held together with big, grippy tannins that fill the palate.

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.

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. There was a time when Markham Merlots were about as good as it got in mid-priced versions of the grape. Changes of owner and winemaker found the wine faltering, but, in this vintage, the winery has got it right. Its caramelly oak overlay and its likeable fruit start its aromas out nicely, and the progression in the mouth from supple to firm is well-supported by that fruit. Enjoy it now or in a few years. We purchased our sample discounted to $17.00, one heck of a bargain.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

The Markham Merlot has black cherry and candied apple aromas that carry over to the palate in a delicate, crisp manner; cleansing aftertaste.

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.
