    March 27, 2020 - Dark ruby colored, medium-full bodied, forward somewhat obtuse flavors of black berry and black cherry fruits with tangy acidic notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, tea and bitter mocha chocolate.

    January 1, 2020 - This is the last bottle of a trio that I bought back in 2008. The first two bottles were stellar and this might be the best of the three. Slightly stewed blackberry and cassis in the glass, with dark fruit, balanced tartness, and nearly integrated tannins (this still has the stuffing for some more cellaring). Sure, I would drink this in the "near" term, but given that this is nearly two decades out, "near" is a relative concept. Yowza. Baller. Close to a whoa. thedrunkencyclist.com

    August 11, 2017 - Dark red color, bouquet was mostly earthy cassis, dense black currant, black cherry fruit, a hint of green pepper, well balanced, medium length finish. Nicely matured, our last bottle, went well with grilled ribeye steak.

    August 8, 2017 - Deep garnet in color with bricking edge. Nose of blackberries, cherries, and hint of earth. Tastes of cherries, crushed dark berries, dark chocolate, and hint of tobacco. Nice fruit, integrated tannins, with light tannins. Drink now.

    May 10, 2017 - Consistent notes with the last bottle: fruity, deep, plenty of verve. Starting to show a bit of age, but it wears it quite well. We opened several bottles over the course of the night, and this was the bottle that emptied first. thedrunkencyclist.com

    (Twomey Cellars Merlot) #1; COLOR-gorgeous; NOSE-an underlying dusty mint-chocolate component; a very gorgeous black cherry as well; TASTE-a big boy; lots of fruit; an absolute fruit bomb, but not over-the-top; very concentrated and focused flavors; I get black cherry and tar bubbles; a little residual hot cherry jam; a great long finish; great length and it's delicious; great richness, roundness & complexity; rivals many Pomeral's and merlot based wines that don't bring this much structure; can drink now, but can be cellared for 7-10 years;; GV-92+
