The lush, round entry on the palate leading to a well structured, full mouthfeel, ending with a long pleasing finish. Added notes of black cherry, ripe plums and nicely integrated oak make this Meritage a wine that can be enjoyed now but will reward the patient consumer with the added complexity that will be gained with years of aging.
Marilyn Wines traces its origins to 1981, when a small group of friends started making wine at their home near St. Helena in the Napa Valley. One evening in 1983, over dinner and a bottle of homemade merlot, the concept of “Marilyn Merlot” was born. The wine enjoyed a good deal of popularity around the valley and was often donated to charity auctions and given as Christmas gifts.
