Twomey Cellars By Silver Oak Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vyd. Santa Maria Valley 2013

External Review by WineExpress.com:

From Silver Oak comes this Twomey Vineyards Pinot Noir. Grapes are sourced from the iconic Central Coast vineyard, Bien Nacido. The backbone of this wine comes from Blocks 1, 7 and 9, all organically farmed hillside plantings. There are also grapes from Block N, one of the original 1972 plantings of own-rooted Martini clone, a vineyard practice rare anywhere in the world. The wine was aged 15 months sur-lie in French oak barrels. Wine & Spirits scored this 91 points saying "With its aromas of cherry skin and candied violets, this has a charming immediacy. The fruit is tangy and lithe, driven by clean acidity, already approachable. It doesn't have a lot of depth to its structure, but it's an elegant and exuberant wine to drink young."
