Twomey Merlot 00 009073 Twomey P Noir Russian River 066pk 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Twomey Merlot is a beautiful example of what this noble variety can achieve in an excellent vintage: suppleness, complexity and great expression of berry fruit. It has a dark ruby color and a nose of fresh, ripe black cherry and blackberry, dark chocolate and what the French call "torifaction", the alluring smell of roasting coffee. On the palate, it has an attack full of explosive fruit and violets prolonged by plenty of "umami", the savory fifth taste. It has a long finish, echoing berry fruit, chocolate and grainy, well-integrated tannins that promise excellent cellaring potential. This Merlot will continue to give drinking pleasure through 2022.

Nice and dry, with a good bite of firm tannins, but it's a little flat in the flavor profile. Shows decent cherry, berry, herb and cedar flavors that could be more vibrant and complex. But it is elegantly structured. - S.H. Aromas of tomato leaf, cedar and cherry lead to firm, modest flavors of red currant and lead pencil. Drink now through 2016. 8,500 cases made. -TF
