Second stop of the day was at Markham. The tasting room is huge with a lot of retail so it definitely caters to a crowd. There were very few people around when we arrived and we were impressed by the service. Our server was very helpful and enjoyed talking to us about the winery and the wines, even though we were disappointed with the quality of the wines we were drinking. Also the pours were very good. We thought that $15 to taste the reserve wines was a bit ridiculous considering that two of the wines are under $30 each.

2003 Zinfandel ($20)Rating: B-C
Feb 3rd, 2007
The 2003 had a lot more pepper than the 2002, and as you would expect tasted younger. Very dry finish with good fruit. Another good value wine
2000 Reserve Merlot ($42)Rating: B
Feb 3rd, 2007
Nice bouquet but seemed very thin. Big tannins again which overpowers everything else
2001 Premium Cabernet Sauvignon ($29)Rating: B
Feb 3rd, 2007
No fruit. Dry finish. Weak Cabernet
2001 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon ($65)Rating: B
Feb 3rd, 2007
More to this Cab then the previous one, but you would have to be crazy to spend $65 on it.
2002 Petite Sirah ($35)Rating: B
Feb 3rd, 2007
We were not mad about the Petite Sirah. Very dry. Could not justify $35 on a bottle
2002 Zinfandel ($20)Rating: B
Feb 3rd, 2007
Good fruit. Nice balance. This is a good every day wine and we thought the Zinfandels are the best value at the winery.
2003 Premium Merlot ($22)Rating: B
Feb 3rd, 2007
"Very jammy nose". Big tannins. Could not drink too much of this
2003 Syrah ($25)Rating: A-B
Feb 3rd, 2007
Fruity but no finish. "Gone". 5% Petite Syrah. We did not experience the "smoky bacon" described in the tasting notes.
