2003 Marilyn







Merlot









Release date: June 1, 2005















The 2003 Marilyn Merlot grapes were harvested by our







longtime growers from vineyards in the heart of the Napa Valley. Sam Shaw,







Marilyn's favorite photographer and a lifelong confidant, shot this photograph







of Marilyn. When asked about Sam Shaw, Marilyn said, "He always makes me look my







best."

Admittedly on the showy side, Marilyn has done







well with her well-endowed Merlots."

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.







-John McKay, Winemaker
