Raspberry, red currant and cherry provide classic Merlot fruit to play against the distinctive minerals, rose petals, vanilla and baking spice aromas throughout this wine. Very structured with muscle to age, the velvety texture has powerful weight to support bright cherry fruit flavors. Rich vanilla oak wraps up the finish on the palate. A roasted mushroom risotto or pasta with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano would balance nicely.

The 2016 Merlot is blended of 85% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petite Sirah and 1% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it has a very pretty , fragrant nose of warm plums, boysenberries and blueberry tart plus hints of baking spices, lavender and dusty earth. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has great intensity and plush, ripe tannins, finishing wonderfully decadent.

The 2016 Merlot is soft, fruity and supple - all qualities that make it a good choice for drinking over the next few years. Black cherry, chocolate, licorice, spice and leather give Markham's Merlot a decidedly dark flavor profile.
