Crafted from a single parcel on our oldest, original 86-acre estate vineyard, this dark and mysterious Merlot invites you to explore aromas of melted milk chocolate and brambly blackberry. Lush, jammy black fruit notes meld with dense, chewy tannins on a luxurious palate. A hint of brightness on the finish is a testament to this wine's capacity to further age in bottle. "After walking row after row of our Yountville Ranch Vineyard, I selected a single Merlot clone (181) on a north facing block. Here the vines produced the smallest berries and most intense flavor, offering an exceptional expression of the vintage and terroir." - Kimberlee Nicholls, Winemaker

At Markham, we don't believe in shortcuts. It takes commitment, passion, and incredible self-belief to create wines that reflect the true character of Napa Valley, and that is what we deliver in every bottle of Markham. Our packaging features the Markham Cannoneer as an homage to Bruce Markham, who legend has it, would signal the start of every harvest by firing a miniature cannon. MARK OF CHARACTER: For more than 40 years, Markham has been dedicated to Bordeaux varietals with an unwavering commitment to Merlot. Markham is the #1 Producer of Napa Valley Merlot. Our winery and estate vineyards are certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance since July 2022. We practice altruism by giving back to non-profit organizations committed to women's equity in the wine, culinary, and hospitality industries. SUSTAINABILITY: Our sustainability practices replenish the vineyards' natural resources, improve air and water quality, and protect the land's ecosystems and wildlife habitats. With each bottle we share, we are reminded of the gifts nature has shared with all of us. OUR ESTATE VINEYARDS: Markham's 260 acres of sustainably farmed estate vineyards and land span the Napa Valley from north to south. The diversity of soil, climate and terrain in our vineyards offer Winemaker Kimberlee Nicholls an extraordinary palette of flavor and texture at harvest time, adding depth and nuance to each and every Markham wine.
