A true Napa Valley blend of vineyards! Markham's Estate vineyards provide the backbone for the blend, totaling almost 70% of this bottling. Merlot from Oak Knoll gives sour cherry character while the Yountville components provide the classic Bing cherry aromas and flavors for which their Merlot is known. The jammy notes come from blending in warmer up-valley fruit from Calistoga vineyards. Much care is taken to maximize the filtered light and allow the Merlot to hang freely within the canopy during harvest. This allows the fruit to mature and color evenly, leaving any vegetal hints behind. The wines are sent to barrels as individual lots to mature, allowing for greater understanding the direct impact of our viticultural & fermentation practices each vintage.



Dark Ruby


Intense floral notes of both Tahitian vanilla and ripe, boysenberry fruit


Wonderful vanilla, roasted nut and caramel oak flavors truly complement all the beautiful rich cherry fruit
