Markham Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Cabernet Sauvignon is predominately blended from the winery's estate vineyards.  Set in a canyon surrounded by wild Bay Laurel trees, the rocky soils provide near perfect growing conditions for our Calistoga Cabernet and Petit Verdot.  In the heart of Napa Valley, Markham's Yountville property has an amazing lineage spanning over 130 years.  The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from that parcel is the backbone of this blend.
