A new Bordeaux-style blend joins the Marilyn Wines family.

Marilyn Meritage 2010

“This 2010 vintage of Marilyn Meritage offers all the rich and delightful flavor as our Merlot, but with structure and sophistication that unfolds beautifully in the glass," says Bob Holder of Marilyn Wines.

For 26 vintages, Marilyn Merlot has set a standard of excellence and elegance in Napa Valley Merlot. Now, a stellar companion takes the stage, as the very first vintage of Marilyn Meritage makes its entrance with one of the most striking and iconic images from photographer Milton Greene’s archive adorning the label – a 1950s publicity photo of Marilyn Monroe with a feather boa draped over her bare shoulders.

Marilyn Meritage 2010 is a classically styled blend in the Bordeaux tradition, and is comprised on 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, and 3% Petit Verdot. The wine is deep in both color and flavor, beautifully textured, with a long and memorable finish.

“Meritage wines and other red blended wines have shown strong growth in the past two years as wine lovers look beyond single grape varieties for the complexities and distinctive style of these wines,” says Bob Holder of Marilyn Wines. “This 2010 vintage of Marilyn Meritage offers all the rich and delightful flavor as our Merlot, but with structure and sophistication that unfolds beautifully in the glass.”

Marilyn Meritage 2010 is a limited production wine that will be available in leading retail stores nationally and on the MarilynWines.com website. The suggested retail price of Marilyn Meritage is $50, and is also available in an elegant and decorative 6-bottle display case for $300.

Other Marilyn wines currently available include Marilyn Merlot; Norma Jeane, a Young Merlot; The Velvet Collection; Sauvignon Blonde; Red Dress; and Blonde de Noirs sparkling wine. These wines can also be ordered by calling (707) 963-5475, or toll free at (866) MMWINES.
