July 24, 2016 - This was absolutely delightful. Rich, smooth and complex. Opened for a party last night, and it was delicious right out of the bottle. Everyone loved it.

April 16, 2016 - So lush and smooth. with a complex and luxurious finish. As others have noted, the more recent Twomey Merlots tend to be angular and undistinguished but this is a real beauty.

September 17, 2015 - Decanted and enjoyed over two hours. What a wonderful Merlot that exceeded my expectations. Well balanced, with nose of dark cherries, silky tannins and a long, lingering finish.

June 6, 2015 - Deep red with light brick color at the edges. Earthy & dark fruit aromas. Starting to mellow but still plenty of fruit and tannins, rich and a little syrupy. Still going strong after 2 hours. Very nice bottle, delicious with Fred's marinated tri-tip. Probably at its peak of development, but should be good for at least 5 more years. Cheers to the Duncan family & Dan Baron for a fabulous Merlot!

January 5, 2015 - Delicious. Fruit to earth then back to fruit and still more earth. A lot left here. Sadly, Twomey has gotten away from this style of production, but anything before 2006 is still worth the price of admission.1 person found this helpful Comment
