Winemaker Notes

Markham Estate Vineyards provide the backbone to this Napa Valley Merlot. Aromas of plum jam and coffee emerge from the glass, enhanced by toffee and cedar notes from oak aging. Juicy black cherry flavors on the palate meld beautifully with a rich, velvety dark chocolate character on the long, round finish.

Blend: 85% Merlot, 6% Petite Sirah, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon,3% Syrah, 2% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

Inviting aromas of red cherry, sliced plum, rosemary and bark. Full-bodied with velvety tannins. Complex baking spice compliments the red and black fruit on the palate, with an earthy undertone throughout.

In 1976, industry pioneer Bruce Markham began his journey towards locating the best vineyard sites in Napa Valley, and subsequently founded Markham Vineyards the following year, with the now local Napa legend, Bryan Del Bondio. In 1980, Markham crafted its first vintage of Napa Valley Merlot—becoming only the fourth winery in Napa Valley to make varietal Merlot—and a decade later, Markham’s flagship bottling was named “Merlot of the Year” by Wine Spectator. Today, Markham continues to be recognized for making benchmark Napa Valley Merlots, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Our wines are crafted by Winemaker Kimberlee Nicholls, who has been with Markham for over two decades. Markham is a proud custodian of 260 acres of pristine, certified sustainable vineyards and land in Napa Valley and our wines are representative of those unique terroirs from Yountville, Oak Knoll and Calistoga. Markham’s wines have earned much acclaim for their vineyard-inspired complexity and character.

Markham practices sustainability without sacrificing quality. For Markham, sustainability starts in the field and focuses on environmentally beneficial land management practices. Some of Markham’s sustainability practices include:

• Protecting the Napa River Watershed

• Water conservation in the vineyards and the winery

• Reduce carbon footprint

• Partnering with local suppliers for wine materials

• Partner with local recycling center to reduce landfill impact

As Napa Valley’s third most planted grape, Napa Valley Merlot shows time and time again its potential to produce exceptional results. Napa’s vaunted combination of climate, soil and the human factor of winemaking expertise lead to big, ripe, cellar-worthy and world-class versions.

Whether made by itself in single varietal bottlings or as an important role in Bordeaux Blends, Merlot continues a prominent role in this famous region. While Cabernet typically takes the lead role, Merlot’s contribution—even at 10% to 20% or so—is significant indeed. Often described as “the flesh on Cabernet’s bones,” Merlot lends a soft, round and plush character that beautifully complements Cabernet’s linear, full-throttle structure. Its flavors of plums plus subtle herbs and mint also dovetail nicely with Cabernet’s blackberry and cassis.
