Wine/MarilynMerlot 1986


Hi Joshua,
What is the value of Marilyn Merlot 1986 & where can I sell it-preferably local New York City?
What years did you work at Windows on the World? We frequently went there for dinner.
Thank you,

Hi Judy,
Looks like the value is between about $400 and about $800 depending on condition and where you find it. In NY the only way to legally sell it is through an auction. Aker Merral does an online auction which might be your best bet. I was there 1988 through 1992. Maybe I popped some corks for you. Best.

I can answer most any question about wine- types, styles, grape varieties, regions, vintages, proper storage, production, wine and food pairing, wine service, decanting, proper glassware, serving temperatures etc. Regarding questions about specific bottles of wine, since I live in the U.S. my focus is on wines imported here. I can't answer questions about spirits and liquor valuations.
