Norma Jeane Merlot 2014
Paso Robles, CA
Making a young Merlot requires a coordinated effort on the part of the vineyard staff and the winemaker, to grow the grapes and make wine with the knowledge that the wine is slated for early release. One is immediately struck with the rich, deep, purple color of the 2014 Merlot. There is nice intensity of aromas with raspberries, red currants and plums with hints of spice and cedar weight on the palate . We really love this one and it’s time to say, “I’ll have a glass of 2014 Norma Jeane.”
New for this year they used 100% Merlot from area known as the “Estrella”.
The vineyard is sustainably farmed and is 16 years of age.
