Deep garnet color and dark cherry and smokey oak aromas. The floral spice notes weave seamlessly around a core of chocolate and blackberry jam flavors. In this 2010 vintage, the Markham Vineyards' Merlot provided velvety texture with distinct chocolate notes. The Cabernet Sauvignon provided the deep, smokey notes that weave throughout. The Petit Verdot is all about structure, while the Petite Sirah adds blackberry jam and floral spice you can't help but love!
Blend: 65% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, and 3% Petite Sirah
"Sleek and supple, offering appealing aromas of red currant
and toasty vanilla, with layered flavors of black cherry,
espresso and spice that lead to ripe, supple tannins. Merlot,
Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah."
Nice quality Napa blend -- shows a lot of strength and will keep in the cellar for a couple of years.
