About the Wine
The 2003 vintage Marilyn Merlot is a blend of 85% Merlot and
15% Cabernet Sauvignon. A substantial addition of Cabernet adds greater
complexity to the nose and more
structure to the mouth.
This wine was barrel aged using 30% new wood to enhance the aromas of vanilla
and roasted coffee. The fruity aromas and flavors are ripe and soft reflecting
the maturity and quality of the grapes we harvested. All the vineyards for this
wine are located in the heart of the Napa Valley ranging from the Oak Knoll
District to the Rutherford District.
