Twomey Pinot Noir Napa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Connoisseurs' Guide: [$50 list] If marginally the fuller Pinot of the Twomey pair, this very well-measured, medium-full-bodied effort conveys much the same sense of fruity vitality and is never overly beholden to ripeness. Its sophisticated nose of fresh cherries, vanilla and gentle spice is echoed in kind and composition by its trim and long-lasting flavors, and, while hardly a wine of bluster and boldness, it gets high marks for richness and style. (Oct 2012)

Rich aroma with oak notes balanced against strong blackberry and cherry umami. The mouth takes on a life of it's own with red fruit, stone fruit, and tropical fruits on the finish. Delicious!

This is bone dry, with lots of zesty acidity and flavors of sour cherry candy, pomegranate and persimmon, with a mushroomy earthiness. It should change over the next four years, although not necessarily improving. Try pairing it with steak, lamb or a... Wine Enthusiast.

Ruby core extends to a deep pink rim. Sweet red fruit leads the bouquet along with macerated cherry strawberry coulis and ripe raspberry. Smooth rich and seamless the palate echoes the pure red fruit complemented by a hint of cola and bubble gum while carrying on to a long caressing finish. This is a very satisfying New World style. Enjoy now and over the next couple of years. Ryan Moses.
