June 14, 2017 – June is Marilyn Monroe’s birthday month. She was born June 1, 1926 in Los Angeles as Norma Jeane Mortensen. The name Marilyn Monroe was created by 20th Century Fox.
Norma Jeane is a delicious Merlot just released by Marilyn Wines. The grapes are from Paso Robles appellation and the winemaker’s notes describe a nice intensity of aromas with fresh raspberries, plums, and hints of orange blossoms, orange zest, and sage. Retailing for only $14, the 2016 Norma Jeane Merlot is something to enjoy all through summer and well beyond.
Still celebrated all these decades later, Marilyn’s pose in a bathing suit with her hair wrapped in a towel, is the personification of a California girl with an all-American smile. Marilyn Wines can be purchased at www.marilynwines.com
