Robert Foley Vineyards Merlot 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is the Merlot for Cab lovers. 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. An exciting evolution is happening… watch this wine! Bob has been making Merlot since the 1976 vintage when it was as well-known as Charbono." -Winery

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 their first Claret, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and over the last 10 years have expanded and diversified their own production. Bob’s reputation for producing very expressive wines which finish gracefully continues to develop at the new winery facility on the summit of Napa County’s Howell Mountain. Bob and wife and Business Manager Kelly Kehoe house over 1000 barrels in an extensive cave system which they completed in summer of 2008 for the production of Robert Foley wines. When Bob's not making wine he spends quality time with his wife Kelly, his children, and his new grand daughter. You can also find Bob at jammin' at venues across the county with his rock and roll group, The Robert Foley Band Read less

Good red-ruby. Wild aromas of blueberry, mocha, espresso, game and earth. Densely packed and generous, with very good intensity to the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. Creaminess of texture is leavened by lively minerality. Finishes firm and persistent, with ripe tannins and considerable nuance.

The 2010 Merlot reveals lots of cocoa, chocolate, Asian plum sauce and black cherry liqueur notes in its dense, ripe, full-bodied, silky, hedonistic personality. It is hard to argue with this voluptuous, seductive California Merlot. Drink it over the next decades.

Combines good focus and structure with richness and power. Aromas of currant and mineral lead to flavors of cherry, mocha and olive. Should bloom with time. Best from 2015 through 2021.
