Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Twomey Bien Nacido Pinot Noir has a red-ruby color and an expressive, complex nose of fresh rose petals, fresh crushed cranberries and wild strawberries with a subtle hint of rosemary. This wine expresses extraordinary freshness on the palate with a fruit-sweet attack, a luscious mid-palate redolent of forest berry fruits with fine grained tannins and a long clean finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
This wine's charm is immediately apparent in its pure scents of roses and wild strawberries. It's an elegant, harmonious pinot noir, the fruit clean, bright and savory, gripped by fine, earthen tannins. Since 2007, Twomey's winemaker Ben Cane has been working with blocks 1, 7 and 9'all hillside blocks planted in 1996, mostly to Pommard. For this vintage, he gained access to Block N, one of the original 1972 Bien Nacido plantings, a parcel of own-rooted Martini clone. Something simple, like roast chicken, would best accompany this graceful wine.

The Duncan Family

Twomey was founded 20 years ago by the Duncan Family of Silver Oak to make dynamic, vineyard-focused wines. Brothers David, Tim, Kevin and Mike founded Twomey Cellars as a Duncan family venture in 1999. Proprietors David and Tim oversee day-to-day operations at the winery.

The Philosophy

Over the years, their passion for Pinot Noir opened exciting new doors to cool climate vineyard opportunities. With each vineyard, the goal is always to craft wines that reflect a delicate balance among a vineyard’s unique micro-climate, soil profile and the human hand—all while capturing the classic character of their respective growing regions.

Sustainable Twomey

Farming with long-term respect for the environment plays a critical role in fruit character and quality. With wines focused on capturing the essence of place, their farming techniques focus on proven methods—from advanced water conservation technologies to the use of cover crops, fish-friendly farming and integrated pest management—that protect the land for future generations.

A lesser-known but elite AVA within the larger Santa Barbara district, the Santa Maria Valley AVA runs precisely west to east starting near the coast. The valley funnels cool, Pacific Ocean air to the vineyards more inland, allowing grapes a longer hang time to ripen evenly and achieve their full potential by harvest time. Combined with minimal rainfall, consistent warm sunshine, and well-drained soils, it is an ideal environment for grape growing.

Many of the wineries here are small and highly respected, having established a reputation in the 1970s and 80s for producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. More recently, Syrah has also proven quite successful in the region. Many vineyards are owned by growers who sell their grapes to other wineries, so it is common to see the same vineyard name on bottlings from different wineries. Bien Nacido Vineyard is perhaps the best-known and most prestigious.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
