Twomey Cellars by Silver Oak Merlot 2002
Created by the same family that produces the impressive Cabernets of Silver Oak Cellars, the 2002 Twomey Merlot is an intense, concentrated wine that combines power and finesse into a beautiful balance. It displays a very dark, ruby color and a velvety, voluptuous mouth-feel with flavors of cherries covered in dark chocolate. Another exceptional handcrafted wine created by the Duncan Family.
"...sexpot of a Merlot" and "very impressive!"
Wine Advocate, February 2005
The Duncan Family’s spirit of innovation would lead them to discover new varietals when in 2000, they secured the nine-acre West Pin vineyard in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, legendary for its extraordinary Pinot Noirs. Several years later, they acquired a winery in Healdsburg where the Pinot Noirs are now produced. Twomey is dedicated to producing Pinot Noir that achieves the greatest balance & expression from four top California appellations, including Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley, Anderson Valley and Santa Maria Valley. Twomey’s newest offering is Sauvignon Blanc, a crisp, refreshing wine that originates at the family’s estate vineyard in Calistoga. Today, Twomey Cellars is run by Managing Partners and brothers David and Tim Duncan. Founding winemaker Daniel Baron and Winemaker Ben Cane carry out their vision of making wines that eloquently express their vineyard and vintage.
