2007 Twomey Cellars Merlot Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is wonderfully expressive, with aromas of roasting coffee beans, bittersweet chocolate and black cherries. Savory and sweet on the palate, there's a hint of soy that complements the chocolate and berry fruit, gritty but integrated tannins and a firm core that suggests it would benefit from a little cellaring.

    Aromas of tomato leaf, cedar and cherry lead to firm, modest flavors of red currant and lead pencil. Drink now through 2016. 8,500 cases made. –TF

    (From 2005 Vintage) Heavy-handed oak is two-steps ahead of fruit here, and, while the wine may be full-bodied and highly extracted, it is also too tannic for its own good and suffers from a real lack of balance and brightness. Size and richness are often good things in wine, but they need fruit for balance. A big drop in price from its first posting is no help here.
