Wine Review: In my opinion Bob Foley is one of the Masters of Merlot and this wine reflects that. This wine opens with a complex nose including pronounced blackberry and licorice aromas with notes of black cherry and new leather. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth as silk, well balanced, and has concentrated blueberry and black current flavors. They express a flavorful, yet elegant profile. The finish is dry with fine tannins that linger for some time before they drift away nicely. Enjoy this wonderful Merlot with a filet mignon at your favorite steakhouse soon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Very ripe, blackberry and currant aromas with a trace of vanilla. Broad, expansive and even across the mid-palate, with a candy-like middle and chewy tannins. Soft edges and tremendous length. Merlot for Cab people!
