Tech Sheet


Occasional Wine Note: Twomey makes some of our favority Merlot and we LOVE Merlot! It's a shame that they discontinued production of this delicious wine. You can still find the grapes as they're now integrated into the Silver Oak Napa Cabernet - another gem of a wine. We cannot find much by way of critic notes on this vintage, but that will not stop us from wanting to share some of this wine we were able to procure from a rare library offering from our friends at Twomey / Silver Oak. We hope you'll enjoy as much as we do.

  • Wine Maker's Notes

    "The fruit for this wine is sourced exclusively from our Soda Canyon Vineyard in southeastern Napa Valley. This Merlot has a dark garnet color and heady aromas of black cherry compote, nutmeg, roasting coffee and violets that seem to burst from the glass. It has a bright entry and a soft, velvety, mouth-coating, mid-palate replete with flavors of juicy berries, roasting coffee and a hint of dark chocolate. This full-bodied, complex wine lingers on the palate with a long, harmonious finish. According to our Winemaking Consultant, Jean-Claude Berrouet, 'This wine expresses the sensual side of Merlot, beautifully complemented by original, exotic notes thanks to the California sun.' With proper cellaring, this beautiful Merlot will continue to give drinking pleasure through 2026.
