Created by the same family that produces the impressive Cabernets of Silver Oak Cellars, the 2003 Twomey Merlot is a robust, yet elegant wine that balances intense fruit with suppleness. It displays a garnet color and a complex

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
