The 2001 Merlot (a 6,354-case blend of 94.3% Merlot and 5.7% Cabernet Franc) exhibits fragrant aromas and flavors of espresso roast, coffee beans, smoke, chocolate, and loads of berry fruit. Dense plum/ruby in color with a hedonistic personality, this is a heady, full-bodied wine to drink over the next 7–8 years. This is a top-flight single-vineyard wine aged completely in French oak, which is in total contrast to the wines made at Silver Oak.

...Flamboyant, sexy aromas of black raspberry, blackcurrant, chocolate, coffee and smoked meat. Lush, broad and full but quite dry, with notes of currant, chocolate and tobacco. Pliant, sophisticated merlot with real personality... Stephen Tanzer. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2001 Twomey Merlot 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 Twomey Merlot is a wine of highly expressive aromatics and beautiful balance and length. It has a dark ruby color and an explosive nose of black cherry, rose petals, dark chocolate and allspice. A rich attack is followed by a silky mouthful of black cherry fruit and an extremely long, fruity finish. Given proper cellaring, this Merlot will continue to give drinking pleasure until 2017.
