Markham Merlot Napa Valley 2010
Awful. Completely unstructured, bitter and raw.
Nose of sour red cherry, eucalyptus, green herbs and red currant. Very red nose. Great acidity on the palate with a juicy profile. Feminine and pretty in style with flavors of cherry, vanilla and cola. Medium bodied and lighter in style. Very nice! 92 pts. 5/10/13 at winery
Ripe, round & rich on the palate this wine scores again with complex cherry vanilla cola fruit flavors. Lush & velvety the way only Merlot can be. The substantial tannins will allow this wine to age.
2007 Napa Markham Merlot was delicious. A lot of complex fruit without being overly heavy or high in alcohol. Delicious lingering vanilla with just the softest, slightest hint of oak lingers on the palette. Good stuff.
Sleek and well-focused, with appealing aromas of red currant and toasty tomato ... Drink now through 2017. -TF
Good $15 go to merlot. Full body
External Reviews for Markham Merlot Napa Valley
This Merlot is typical of the vintage in that respect. Aromas of violets and blackberry briars remind one of Cabernet Sauvignon while the fleshy texture alludes to Merlot. The attractive sweet espresso and black raspberry flavors add to the mystery. A bit of bottle age should allow the spicy, cherry fruit and vanilla oak to shine.
Founded by Jean Laurent, formerly of Bordeaux in 1879. Jean Laurent originally came looking for gold but instead found his fortune in grapes.
Black pepper and tobacco aromas swirl around the cherry cola core. Roasted nut and caramel oak flavors compliment the beautiful rich cherry fruit.
Definitely on the ripe, intense side, with strong flavors of currants and anise-infused chocolate, but keeps its balance and integrity, mainly through the fine acid-tannin balance. Not too oaky, either, and what a great, long finish.
This compact merlot has light, brisk flavors of cherries and floral tannins that last. It feel complete, ready to enjoy with prime rib.
Tender, gentle black raspberry flavor extends into a bit of woody funk. A merlot for calvesrsquo; liver and onions, or other organ meats.
