Mission Codename PV as in perfect value
We interrupt the day’s programming with a change of pace.
Meanwhile, you can find the last few bottles of the CLASSIFED offering here in the Store.
A coup of epic proportions next! You’ll recall that a couple of months ago we scored some gems from a quintessential, blue-chip Napa institution - MARKHAM!! Normally you can only find these at the winery - and you’d pay $75!! From us?
You guessed it… a LIBRARY VINTAGE drinking like a dream at a breezy $22!
This Petit Verdot from Markham is everything you want and more for an epic price!
Markham is a blue-chip producer in Napa. As one of the Valley’s longest continually run wineries, they have never stopped innovating. Back in the 1800s, Jean Laurent founded the property, built a stunning Stone Cellar waaaaay before it was cool, and pushed the winery to adopt the newest technology of the day and oak cooperage which was not a common thing in Napa yet. In the ‘80s, they were on the cutting edge as the 4th winery in Napa to produce Merlot and they set a gold standard for the varietal to this day. In 2001, they promoted Kimberlee Nicholls to Head Winemaker making her one of the first female head winemakers in Napa. She leads to this day and helps maintain a consistently high level of quality at every vintage.
Today, with 45 vintages under the Markham label, they lead the charge of sustainable winegrowing in Napa with Nicholls at the helm and a team of badass women behind her.
The Heritage Selection Collection is an exclusive series of epic wines that we got special access to, just for you. Trust us, it was like pulling teeth to get the good stuff!
This too, just like the 2015 we offered before, is deep, dark, and sexy. Napa Valley through and through. Aromas of plum, blackberry, black cherry, thyme, and sage. This is a full-bodied wine that will benefit from decanting or a bit of aeration. Mocha, blueberries, sweet cherry, wood smoke, and luscious vanilla over bold velvety tannins. Long and balanced with a silky mouthfeel that begs for a decadent dinner.
At OVER 70% OFF you won’t find a better deal on one of the classic wines from Napa Valley.
