Twomey Merlot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

96% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc. Twomey's 2011 Soda Canyon Ranch Merlot is a rich, dark, concentrated expression of this noble variety. It has a dark ruby color with red highlights and a robust nose of blackberry confit, cassis, roasted meat and dark chocolate. It has a velvety attack and an extremely long, slightly tannic finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2028. Barrel aged 13 months in French oak (36% new, 36% once-used, and 28% older). Alcohol 14.5%.
