Saw a magnum on the top shelf and decided to enjoy while working on the income tax for last year, nose of black cherry, blackberry, plum, and fig, more of the same on the palate, concentrated merlot with lots of rich, ripe fruit on the first sip, lots of flavor and complexity here, the magnum was purchased directly from Twomey and worth the extra money paid for it, elegant wine, enjoyed over 3 nights, medium/big body, still fresh and youthful tasting, great finish and aftertaste.
Sunday, the second day of Wildcard Weekend and I ws planning to enjoy both NFL Games today so I opened a magnum of my favorite wine. This magnum was purchased directly from David Duncan/Twomey thanks to the efforts of Tom Laengle. Bouquet of cassis, black cherry and blackberry which exploded when opening the bottle and being poured into my glass, more of the same on the palate, extremely rich, mouth filling, intensely concentrated fruit on the mid palate, one of the best bottles of this wine I have ever enjoyed, sipped and savored for four hours, elegant to taste, medium/big body and great finish and aftertaste. The best part is I have one half the magnum to enjoy Monday Night!!
Sunny, breezy, and low seventies seemed like a great excuse to open a magnum of wine for the weekend. This was purchased about 18 months ago directly from David Duncan/Twomey thanks to the efforts of Tom Laengle. Bouquet of cassis, black cherry and plum, more of the same on the palate, extremely mouth filling and decadently rich on the mid palate, the second best bottle of this wine that I have ever enjoyed, elegant, medium/big body and long, long, luscious finish and aftertaste. This is Merlot Bordeaux style!
Magnum purchased from Silver Oak/Twomey Library on 2/25/15 Silver Oak Napa Valley Release Day. Saved one half the magnum to drink tonight, stored overnight in the refrigerator, lovely nose of black cherry fruit, touch of blackberry, white pepper, and dusty earth/minerals, more of the same on the palate, elegant tasting, rich fruit, medium/big body, at its peak, slight oxidation showing tonight, long fruity finish and aftertaste.
