2008 Twomey Napa Valley Merlot

SKU #1120052 91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. The grapes come from the cool Soda Canyon area of Napa Valley, at the base of Atlas Peak. Inner quote mark (12/2012)

K&L Notes

Twomey's Merlot is sourced from the rolling volcanic hills of their Soda Canyon Ranch vineyard in southeastern Napa Valley. It is densely planted with low-yielding vines which produce small, intensely-flavored berries. The wine was aged for 13 months in 39% new French oak and blended with 9% Cabernet Franc before bottling. From the winery: "Garnet color with purple edges and an enticing nose of perfectly ripe, fresh black cherries, violets, nutmeg and dark chocolate. It has a bright attack and a satiny mouth-feel. The fresh cherry fruit returns on the palate and the wine is full bodied without being cloying. The finish is vibrant with notes of dark chocolate and enough tannic grip to ensure good cellaring."
