Description 

Twomey
Our Soda Canyon Vineyard Merlot is a vivacious wine that displays ideal ripeness from a uniquely cool California vintage. It has a dark garnet color and a complex nose of cherry liqueur, dark chocolate, pipe tobacco, lavender, cloves and hazelnut. On the palate, it has a velvety mouthfeel, a full body, beautiful acid balance and a long, juicy finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2027.

Twomey began with a remarkable vineyard, our Soda Canyon Ranch, in southeastern Napa Valley. Our family bought the ranch because of its Cabernet Sauvignon, but when we discovered that the Merlot planted there was from some of the finest French clones, we wondered if it would be worthy of a wine of its own. When our winemaker, Daniel Baron ' who had worked in both Pomerol and Saint-emilion during his career ' came to us and said he'd like to make the Merlot using an ancient technique he'd learned in Bordeaux called soutirage traditionnel, we didn't hesitate. In honor of Ray Duncan, we named the new wine 'Twomey' (his mother's maiden name); not long after, we purchased our Calistoga winery, which today is Twomey's Napa Valley home.
