Markham Merlot Napa Valley 2010
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.
External Reviews for Markham Merlot Napa Valley
Founded by Jean Laurent, formerly of Bordeaux in 1879. Jean Laurent originally came looking for gold but instead found his fortune in grapes.
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.
