Robert Foley Merlot 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
An appealing texture combines with depth and focus, offering aromas of floral black cherry and mocha that lead to rich and layered flavors of red currant, spiced herb and black licorice. The tannins are big but ripe, firming up on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 800 cases made.
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.
