"Black cherry and raspberry jam flavors with milk chocolate and vanilla bean aromas. A delicious and opulent structured wine with a velvety texture. Inspired by Markham's deep history of making Bordeaux varietals in Napa Valley, with a passion for Merlot and Cabernet, The Altruist is a red blend made in the Right Bank style, where Merlot takes center stage.

Blend: 61% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot" - Winemaker's Notes
The Tasting Panel
  • tp93

This Right Bank-style blend of 61% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller portions of Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot aged in French and American oak for over 16 months. Bright coffee, cherry, and dark chocolate illuminate the well-built frame. Dynamic and luscious, with finely grained tannins and a toasty finish of plum and cedar.

Some vivid tobacco leaves and olives to the dark plums, cassis and cedary wood. A hint of chocolate, too. Juicy and firm on the palate, showing nice dryness and poise. A classy red blend of 61% merlot, 24% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc, 5% malbec and 3% petit verdot. Ends pretty long, fresh and nuanced. Well made.
