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
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.
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.
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.
