Review: ***+ $$ Markham Chardonnay, Napa Valley, California, 2011 = GOOD VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Markham Chardonnay.

Original tasting and review : This is Markham Chardonnay, Napa Valley, California, 2011.

In the glass: Clear, hint of yellow and green.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows light butter and fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be bold in a classic, well-oaked way.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft, but dry with some brisk pepper elements.  A light creme fraise knits the bright fruit together.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a plus on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, making this a good value.
