Markham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 - Purchased at Safeway in Lahaina, Maui - $18. When this wine review appeared in WS, this wine disappeared from wine stores. I found and bought this at  Safeway in Lahaina, Maui.
Oct 28 - Markham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 - RM 91 WS 92 Spectator Selection - Rich ripe currant, black cherry and hint of cedar with long tight but polished finish. Much more tasty fruit and more approachable than bottle lat opened last summer.
July 25, 2004 - Markham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 - WS 92 Spectator Selection - RM 85 Earthy, smoky black raspberry and black cherry with a tight tannic finish. Digging out the 10 yr olds from the cellar. Declining ratings tell me that this wine is starting to decline? Or perhaps anomalous bottle...
Reviewed 12/03/03 - Markham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 RM 90 WS 92 SS $18 Rich cherry, currant - slightly awkward initially but has a long big smooth pleasant finish of subtle currant and pronounced blackcherry. Much better than a couple years ago when this wine was closed and 'lost'. This wine was a tremendous value for this quality and price - a huge achievement for this producer.  May be at its prime now.
1994 Markham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - WS 92 RM 91 $24. One of the top ten wines of the vintage - WS Top Ten - tough to find at the time - I squirreled away a case & resisted tapping it till now! I opened this for OTBN (Open That Bottle Night - WSJ Gaither Feb 1, 2002).
