Merlot 2012

Robert Foley Vineyards

A Merlot for Cabernet lovers – black currant, cassis and ripe cherry aromas follow through in a sweet lush mid-palate. Candied fruit flavors and velvety tannins are balanced with bright natural acidity, providing a long finish with suggestions of chocolaty mocha. This wine's strong structure and spice is from our own Howell Mountain fruit, while its round femininity comes from Calistoga to create a perfect textural balance.

Reviews

  • "93 points. Highly Recommended. An appealing texture combines with depth and focus, offering aromas of floral black cherry and mocha that lead to rich and layered flavors of red currant, spiced herb and black licorice. The tannins are big but ripe, firming up on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 800 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
