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. As one might expect from Robert Foley, these are all massive wines, opaque purple in color, and filled with personality and concentration.
