The long cool growing season of 2010 in Napa Valley yielded Merlot wines of lovely balance and elegance. 2010 Marilyn Merlot is completely ready to enjoy on release and offers the promise of graceful aging as well. A great conversation piece at dinner, a wine that lives up to its promise of Napa glamour in a glass. - WineryThe photo portrait of Marilyn Monroe in a red dress set against a black background is from the last photo session with Milton Greene in 1957, and it is as playful as it is provocative -- qualities Marilyn often combined in films and in life.

The 2010 Marilyn Merlot features a photo portrait on the starlet in a Red dress on a black background. The provocative and irreverent photograph was taken by Milton Greene in one of his last sessions with the star.


Vintage: 2008 11/13/2010

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. This fancifully named Merlot is filled with firm and shapely fruit smelling of red cherries with a touch of clove-like spice for good measure. It is supple in texture and a bit plump at first impression but recovers nicely across the palate and finishes with a bang.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Vintage: 2008 08/13/2013

The release of the 2008 vintage celebrates the 24th vintage of a wine appreciated by fans of the iconic star, collectors of Marilyn memorabilia, and lovers of fine Napa Valley wine. The striking and glamorous image of Marilyn Monroe in a purple, shoulderless cocktail dress is from photos done for the release of The Asphalt Jungle in 1950, a film noir classic for which John Huston was nominated for an Oscar and in which Marilyn plays to perfection her role as the mistress of a crooked attorney. - Winery ** Only 9 in Stock **

Winemaker's Notes:

94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon from grapes grown in the Yountville and Oakville regions of the Napa Valley. The wine's color is vibrantly garnet and the complex aromas of blueberries, anise and toasty oak all work in harmony for a wine worthy of its legacy. Moderate alcohol, soft fruit flavors and a lingering finish makes this wine a great companion with foods of many cuisines. Alcohol: 13.9%.
