Brand Description

In 1976, industry pioneer Bruce Markham acquired his first 230 acres of Napa Valley vineyards, and founded Markham Vineyards the following year, with the now local Napa legend, Bryan Del Bondio as the winery's first employee. In 1980, Markham crafted its first vintage of Napa Valley Merlot—becoming only the fourth winery in Napa Valley to make varietal Merlot—and a decade later, Markham's flagship bottling was named 'Merlot of the Year' by Wine Spectator. Today, Markham continues to be recognized for making benchmark Napa Valley Merlots, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Crafted by longtime Winemaker Kimberlee Nicholls, using grapes from 350 acres of estate vineyards in Yountville, Oak Knoll and Calistoga, Markham's wines have earned acclaim for their vineyard-inspired complexity and character. Markham proudly holds the Napa Green Land, Napa Green Winery, and Fish Friendly Farming certifications

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
