Twomey Merlot 2002
Wine AdvocateEven better than the 2001 is the 2002 Merlot, a blend of 99.4% Merlot and .6% Cabernet Franc. The good news is that there are 10,845 cases of this sex pot of a Merlot. An exotic perfume of pepper, herbs, black cherries, plums, and raspberries is accompanied by an exciting texture, a plush, fleshy palate, and a concentrated, long heady, moderately tannic finish. This wine should improve over the next 2-3 years and last for 10-14. Very impressive!
Wine SpectatorNot up to previous efforts, as a band of herb, currant and cola-laced fruit turns dry and cedary on the finish.
