Twomey Merlot 00 010088 Twomey P Noir Sonoma Coast 07 2008
A luscious wine of moderate alcohol that achieves a beautiful balance between ripeness and freshness. It has a garnet color with purple edges and an enticing nose of perfectly ripe, fresh black cherries, violets, nutmeg and dark chocolate. It has a bright attack and a satiny mouth-feel. The fresh cherry fruit returns on the palate and the wine is full bodied without being cloying. The finish is vibrant with notes of dark chocolate and enough tannic grip to ensure good cellaring. This beautiful Merlot will continue to give drinking pleasure through 2023, with proper cellaring. 92% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. Barrel aged 13 months in French oak (39% new, 23% once-used, 38% older).
Mild oak, mango and red fruit. Creamy. Straightforward mild body

Made with a drop of Cabernet Franc, this Merlot is rich, smooth and bone dry. With modest alcohol, it brims with flavors of black and red currant, licorice, anise and white pepper, as well as a subtle touch of sweet, smoky new oak.
Plum purple core with a garnet rim. The bouquet is modern, with aromas of cedar, vanilla, black cherry, boysenberry, and berry liqueur. Brambly on the palate with notes of fresh ripe plums, mocha, and vanilla extract. Soft and luscious throughout wit... Alex Lallos. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2008 Twomey Merlot 750ml
Plum purple core with a garnet rim. The bouquet is modern with aromas of cedar vanilla black cherry boysenberry and berry liqueur. Brambly on the palate with notes of fresh ripe plums mocha and vanilla extract. Soft and luscious throughout with a long ripe fruity finish full of dark chocolate covered cherry flavors and seamless tannins. Very nice. Alex Lallos.
