Celebrating Marilyn Monroe Merlot’s 30 anniversary wine! This Merlot is a deep rich scarlet wine with purple hues. It is very enjoyable now with nuances of spice, cherry, and a bright finish.
This was another early and excellent quality year for growing grapes. We have small berries withy good acidity and deep flavors.
Bernard Bruno (Bernard of Hollywood) took this photo of Marilyn in the 1950’s when Marilyn was producing her own movies. Marilyn is said to have told Bernard, “Remember, Bernie you started it all —you discovered me!”
