The Full Review

If you're, literally, making wine for aspiring chefs at the The Culinary Institute of America there ain’t no time for unbalanced oaky craziness taking away from the subtle nature of their work, right? RIGHT! Bringing in Kimberlee Nicholls (Winemaker) and Bryan Del Bondio (President) of Markham Vineyards twelve years ago to make wine for the CIA was a match made in the forests of Dionysus. Crazy affordable, and silly balanced, this wine welcomes with ripe pineapple and peach with the citrus-sweet tang of acacia. The bracing acidity on the palate brings a refreshing mountain creek mineral tone, along with a creamy mouthfeel pronouncing a hint of minty jasmine. It will basically pair with anything white wine pairs with. ANYTHING.
