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

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.
Sleek and well-focused, with appealing cherry and tomato leaf aromas and nicely layered red currant, herb and spicy caramel flavors that linger toward ripe tannins. Drink now through 2017.
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.
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.
