ROBERT FOLEY 12 MERLOT NAPA VALLEY 750mL

When Robert Foley was the winemaker for Pride Mountain on Spring Mountain, he was known for crafting Merlot for Cabernet drinkers. So it should come as no surprise that his own Merlot can be described in the same manner! At a recent trade tasting, all the Robert Foley wines were stunning…but it was the complexity and intensity of his Merlot that really caught us off guard. Was it really the Merlot we were drinking, and not the Cabernet? Yes, Merlot really can be one of the great wines in your life! Combining fruit from Foley's Howell Mountain estate with fruit from the valley floor, the wine's dark ruby color introduces a ripe medley of blueberry/ blackberry pie aromas. The mid-palate floods with ripe berry flavors that then introduce mocha, vanilla and espresso nuances that linger through the finish. Even if you think you don't like Merlot, reserve judgment until you've tried this one!

ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS - "Robert Foley, who became prominent as the winemaker for so many great vintages at Pride Mountain Vineyard, has been on his own for a number of years. His current offerings include three outstanding efforts from the super 2012 vintage."

"The 2012 Merlot offers up lots of chocolate, Asian soy, kirsch and coffee bean characteristics in a rich, full-bodied, opulent, sensual style. Layered, fleshy and hedonistic, it can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years."
