Each new vintage of Marilyn Monroe Merlot sells out quickly. While collectors have made Marilyn Monroe Merlot one of the fastest-appreciating wines on the market, it is wine enthusiasts with a sense of humor who have long enjoyed the playful spirit behind Marilyn Merlot wines that are now also seeking the Marilyn Monroe Merlot because of the emphasis on making a notable wine from prized Napa Valley grapes. While the concept and engaging label of these wines has given these bottles a degree of fame, it is the wine in the bottle that merits the enthusiasm of those who seek it out every year.
"This wine is every bit as special as its package," says Donna Holder, one of the owners of Marilyn Wines. "It is a must for collectors, but is also a Napa Valley Merlot that stands beautifully on its own."
Marilyn Monroe Merlot wines consistently win praise from critics and lovers of stylish and delicious Merlot.
The 2014 Marilyn Merlot is a deep rich scarlet wine with purple hues that immediately catch ones eye as it is poured in the glass. The aromas exhibit good intensity with a complexity of dark, mature fruit, hints of mocha, forest floor, earthiness and mushroom characters. This merlot has a solid medium body, good structure, and well balanced with well integrated tannins. The Favors follow the aromas with added nuances of spice, cherry, and a bright lingering fnish. Very enjoyable now but will reward with at least 5-8 years of aging.
