Twomey Merlot 2002
The 2002 Twomey Merlot is an intense, concentrated wine that combines power and finesse in beautiful balance. It displays a very dark, ruby color and a complex nose of black cherry jam, roasting coffee, dark chocolate and cloves. It has a velvety, voluptuous mouth-feel with flavors of cherries covered in dark chocolate, and an extremely long finish with echoes of fruit and spice.
Not up to previous efforts, as a band of herb, currant and cola-laced fruit turns dry and cedary on the finish.
