Food Pairings for Twomey Merlot Napa Valley
One bottle of three had a serious cork failure. The wine had turned to vinegar. Of course the Prince of wines replaced it, but each one thereafter had the slight background flavor of acetic acid (vinegar). Sorry, but I won't be spending on Twomey again. Spend a little more and enjoy the best, Silver Oak Napa Valley or Alexander Valley...its a far better product!
Mild oak, mango and red fruit. Creamy. Straightforward mild body
Juicy blue berries blackberries a bit herbal. Beautiful palate.
nice nose of deep red fruit and spice....big mouthfeel with smoth tannins.....long finish
Good wine for the price. Very smooth. Pair it with the Swiss Appenzeller cheese and you will LOVE the way it tastes. I believe this wine is underrated. I would give it 91+.
winemaker's notes: The 2006 Merlot is a single-vineyard wine from the Duncan family's Soda Canyon Ranch in Napa Valley. It has a dark ruby color and a nose of black cherry and dark chocolate. On the palate, it is spicy and full-bodied, with a long finish of cedar and berry fruit. Twomey Cellars
Robust aromas of dark fruits, cherry, wild game, and animal hide, with hints of cigar and cloves, decorate the nose. The palate starts thin and acerbic, broadens and tames over first hour. Flavors of wild black cherry, plum, spice and pepper intermingle, and the palate broadens with time. Best after two hours. Closes back off to predominant bitterness at 2 ½ to 3 hours. Then this mercurial wine opens and closes frequently. On the second day, there is less bitterness, better fruit.

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.
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.

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
Dark ruby color. Fragrant and sweet black cherry aromas open to more complex notes of vanilla, cocoa and hints of cedar. The sweet fruit continues on the palate with concentrated flavors of cherry, plum, black currant and bittersweet chocolate. A sup... Tracey Rose.

Our 2006 Twomey Merlot combines spice and fruit in a classical expression of varietal character. It has a dark ruby color and nose of black cherry, tobacco, dark chocolate and tarragon. On the palate, it is spicy and full-bodied, with a fine-grained tannic structure that crescendos to a long finish of cedar and berry fruit. This Merlot will continue to give drinking pleasure through 2018. - Winery Composition: 94% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc
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.
