Winemaker Markus Niggli founded Markus Wine Co in 2014. With a focus on quality fruit, Markus’ goal is to make wines that can be enjoyed upon release or cellared for over a decade. You will never find a flabby, boring offering from Markus as he’s all about balanced fruit with a good amount of acidity in every wine he makes….
In the glass, this Syrah driven blend has an electric purple center with garnet edges and a fairly wide transparent outer core that is BEAUTIFUL…
When I give the wine a sniff I get a bacony note with raspberry jam and clove… Another smell brings out warm baked fruit —–> dare I say fruit pie!?!?
My first taste starts with a meaty and rich mouthfeel of macerated raspberries. When I give the wine a chew, the mid-palate is warm blackberry pie and baking spice 🥧🍷🥧🍷 The ending closes bright and deep with grippy tannins, black cherries, and a coriander note that hangs on……………
This wine is a STUNNER! It needs some time in the cellar or the decanter but once it opens up, HOLY HELL is it delicious… There’s some gaminess, some spiciness, some fruitiness, and oh yea —> there’s that whole PIE THING….
Wanna make dad a happy camper on Father’s Day?!?! This is your answer —- > Hit up Markus Wine Co and order a couple bottles NOW!
p.s…….. he offers a 15 buck FLAT shipping rate on ALL ORDERS regardless of quantity and destination so you might as well stock the cellar!!!
