Merlot 2013

Robert Foley Vineyards

A Merlot for Cabernet lovers – very dark ruby in color, the ripeness follows with aromas of candied fruit, black cherry and dark currant with a hint of mocha and espresso. The rich flavorful middle is framed by perfectly balanced natural acidity combining mouth-coating viscosity and a long lively finish. 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

  • "A hundred percent Merlot, the 2013 Merlot comes from both Calistoga and Howell Mountain. Aged 18 months in French oak, this is a good, chocolaty style of Merlot, with some coffee bean notes, underbrush, as well as plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit in a fleshy, succulent style. Drink it over the next 7-8 years." (Robert Parker)
