2011 Norma Jeane
The label for this 2011 vintage of Norma Jeane – A Young Merlot was taken by Hollywood glamour photographer Bruno Bernard, in 1949 at the Palm Springs Racquet Club, with Norma Jeane playfully posing on a diving board above shimmering water the color of her bathing suit. It was during this photo shoot that she was introduced to the Hollywood agent Johnny Hyde, who secured a role for her in The Asphalt Jungle, leading to her fame as Marilyn Monroe.
The grapes for this wine were sourced predominantly from the Paso Robles AVA, where Merlot is a leading grape variety, yielding wines often noted for their generosity of flavor, elegance, and balance.
We recommend drinking the Norma Jeane, Young Merlots, slightly chilled!
