Wine Advocate 94 for around $64
Thanksgiving day was the special pick for Twomey Cellars Merlot. Let me start out by saying, this wine could have been the wine they had at the wedding feast in Cana! Wow, the best wine I have ever had period. I'm now officially a Merlot man, good-bye Cab. As soon as I uncorked the bottle the room , yes room filled quickly with the aromatics just overflowing from the bottle. Once I had poured her into my glass I was in Merlot heaven. I just really enjoyed wiffing the glass, let alone tasting. I drew my lips to the rim and gave her a tilt, immediately a slightly spicy black over ripe berry hit me, with a slight raw meat nose that ran up my nostrils at the same time. Yes, the tremendous flavor of candied cherries bathed in dark chocolate teased my palate. The finish was ongoing, atleast a full minute I kid you not! I savored this bottle for a long time and was ready to cry when I had the last drop. Folks this wine was beyond words, the BEST america has produced yet. Petrus has nothing on this brand! I'm looking forward to Christmas for another treat! It's truly off the charts.
I had the 2004 Twomey.This is an exceptional wine for the price point. One of the best California Merlots. It really opens up if you decant for an hour or two. Very concentrated fruit, good structure. Great with lamb.
Aside from the hyperbolic review of some, this is an exquisite wine. Cab lovers should do themselves a favor and indulge.
