Twomey Merlot 2004


SKU 09231


Our 2004 Twomey Merlot is an elegant, concentrated wine that balances delicacy and expression of fruit. It has a dark ruby color and a complex nose of black cherry, raspberry, violets and dark chocolate, with hints of lightly toasted bread. It offers multiple layers of cherry liqueur, toffee, chocolate and amaretto flavors, culminating in a long fruity finish. Given proper cellaring, this full-bodied Merlot will continue to give drinking pleasure until 2016.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Merlot (93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) exhibits plenty of earth, herb, mocha, and sweet cherry and currant fruit in its ripe, oaky style. The impressive attack is followed by a dry, austere finish without the necessary depth of fruit and texture to back up the wood and structure. It should offer a pleasant glass of Merlot during its first 5-6 years of life.

Wine SpectatorHigh-toned aromas of super-toasty oak, roasted herbs and black cherry lead to lean and tannic flavors with strong tobacco and cedar tones. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 7,400 cases made.
