Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2010 vintage Marilyn Meritage is the inaugural release of a wine whose goal is to showcase Napa Valley's cool climate ability to make wines of classic stature within the Bordeaux tradition. The composition is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot. The wine is youthful in appearance, has clean aromas and flavors for all the blended varieties, and tastes great. The wine has a pedigree that will satisfy today, but last for many to come.

The elegant yet soulful photo used for label is owned by the Milton Greene Archives. It was selected by thousands of fans on the Marilyn Monroe Facebook page.

Critical Acclaim

"Very rich and elaborate with blackberry, cherry and cassis flavors, this wine is so tasty, it's easy to drink glass after glass. The tannins are firm, but soft and complex. Made from all the classic Bordeaux varieties, it’s classy and elegant, and will hold in the bottle for years."
