Robert Foley Merlot Napa Valley 2007
External Reviews for Robert Foley Merlot Napa Valley
It is hard to find much better Merlot than Foley's 2007 Merlot. This is a blockbuster wine as well. Opulent, exuberant, with that certain "wow" factor from layers of melted fudge, espresso roast, plum, fig, and black cherry and currants, there is an impression of sweetness because of the high levels of alcohol/glycerin. This is a whopper to drink over the next 14+ years.
A distinctive style, loaded with high-toned, toasty oak, but there's more than enough depth and richness to carry this. Aromas of currant and espresso lead to supple, structured plum, roasted anise and spice flavors. Tannins tighten the finish. Needs time. Best from 2011 through 2014.
