St Helena, CA (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
The 2010 vintage of Marilyn Merlot makes its debut this month, and promises to command attention not only for its striking label but its silken and sensuous qualities.
The photo portrait on the 2010 vintage is from the legendary "Red Sitting" series shot by photographer Milton Greene in 1957. Green was known as "Color Photography's Wonder Boy," who gained fame with his photo images of Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, and others. But in Marilyn Monroe, Greene found his ultimate muse. The "Red Sitting" photo session was the last collaboration between Greene and Marilyn Monroe, and the resulting images capture Marilyn at her most flirtatiously alluring.
“This vintage of Marilyn Merlot is just as seductive in style as the playful and provocative image on the label,” says Donna Holder of Marilyn Wines. “The long, cool 2010 growing season for Merlot in Napa Valley gave us a wine of subtlety and balance that is just so easy to love.”
The 2010 vintage of Marilyn Merlot will be in wide national distribution at a suggested retail price of $29.00 and will also be available on the MarilynWines.com website. Other Marilyn wines currently available include 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.
