Robert Foley Vineyards 2013 Merlot

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.

About:
Robert Foley began his wine making career in the Napa Valley in 1977, working at a number of highly regarded Napa Valley wineries including the famous Pride Mountain Vineyards, where he spent 15 years as founding wine maker. During this period he also created the highly acclaimed Switchback Ridge, Hourglass, Paloma, School House, and Engel Family wines. In 1998 Robert Foley Vineyards bottled its flagship Claret (a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend), and has since expanded and diversified its production to offer more of the big reds Bob is famous for – Petite Sirah, Merlot, Charbono, the limited-release Howell Mountain Cabernet, and Bob's latest creation, The Griffin (a blend of the best in the red cellar). Ever seeking new, fun, and interesting, Bob has also bottled three of his favorite whites: Pinot Blanc, Semillon, and Roussanne. Bob’s reputation for producing very expressive wines that finish gracefully continues to develop at his new winery facility on the summit of Napa County’s Howell Mountain, where more than 1,000 barrels are housed in an extensive cave system (completed in 2008) for the production of Robert Foley wines.
