Tasting Notes

This “right bank” red blend combines the velvety flavors of Merlot with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in oak for 24 months, it delivers opulent notes of cherry and plum layered with aromas of vanilla and toast.

Blend: Merlot 64%, Cabernet Sauvignon 21%, Malbec 7%, Petit Verdot 4%, Cabernet Franc 4%

About Markham Vineyards

OUR FOUNDER – Jean Laurent leaves the Bordeaux region of France in 1852 to join the Gold Rush in California, a journey that leads him to establish one of the first wineries in Napa Valley. His Bordeaux upbringing molded him into a viticulture and winemaking purist, and he quickly discovers that the Napa soils are a natural home for the grapevine. Jean founds the winery in 1874 and — after finding success with his wines — builds the stone cellar in 1879 that remains the heart of Markham Vineyards today.

OUR NAMESAKE – Bruce Markham is an Arizona businessman who finds himself with a pocketful of money in the late 1970s. He invests in 230 acres of vineyards across the Napa Valley, a craftsman-style bungalow home and Jean Laurent’s old stone cellar winery along Highway 29. Around the same time, the Napa Valley is gaining visibility in the wine world after a wine competition in Paris — now famously known as “The Judgment of Paris” — puts Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon on the map.

Bruce served in the US Navy and had a miniature cannon. The story goes that he would mark the start of each harvest by firing his cannon in the vineyards.
