MARKHAM NEW RELEASE VIDEO

Introducing our pinnacle wine... 2018 The Character

Winemaking Notes

  • Our viticulture team hand tends key vineyard blocks throughout the season.
  • Fruit is carefully hand picked and crushed into small fermenters for exceptional concentration.
  • Individual lots aged separately 30 months in 100% new French Oak.
  • Winemaker Kimberlee Nicholls chose the best 7 barrels of the Markham winery

 

“Of 6,000 barrels of wine in our cellar, only 7 were selected for this iconic estate-grown wine. Building upon the lush, velvety base of our finest lot of Yountville Ranch Merlot—Clone 181 from a north-facing block—the final blend was carefully composed to fully capture the rich color and chewy tannins that were the hallmark of the 2018 vintage in our Napa Valley vineyards.”

– WINEMAKER KIMBERLEE NICHOLLS
