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.

A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2005 Twomey Merlot 750ml

Bright, deep red-ruby. Red berries, tobacco, pine resin and a whiff of herbs on the nose. Suave, young and dry, with a slightly tart quality to the flavors of plum, redcurrant and tobacco. Theres a light greenness here but also a subtle smoky sweetness. Finishes fresh and firm, with a fine dusting of tannins. This has been a consistently intriguing and understated merlot in recent vintages. ** SOLD OUT **

When Silver Oak winery wanted to expand they purchased a prime vineyard in Southeastern Napa Valley, the Soda Canyon Ranch. They discovered that amongst the vines planted in this well-drained volcanic soil vineyard, were exceptional French clones of Merlot that exhibited distinct character and intensity. Head Winemaker Daniel Baron, having worked in Pomerol and St. Emilion, had a strong affinity for Merlot and so Twomey was born. All the grapes are sourced from this unique single vineyard, where the temperate climate brings low yields and intense black-fruit character. The winemaking is slow and deliberate. The wine is aged 16 months in French oak barrels and is hand racked in a painstaking process from barrel to barrel. This eliminates the need for filtration, creating a wine with a purity and vibrancy that’s unsurpassed. Extremely limited. <small>This item excluded from any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2005 Twomey Merlot is a voluptuous, robust and balanced expression of this noble variety. It has a deep garnet color and an intensely concentrated nose of black cherry, blackberry essence, wild game and freshly ground black pepper. On the palate, it is full-bodied and velvety, with fine-grained tannins and an extremely long finish. This Merlot will continue to give drinking pleasure through 2018.
