W&S 93 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - "Twomey’s 2012 Russian River pinot noir, sourced from three separate vineyards, is bursting with flavor but not at all heavy: a clean, crisp beam of red fruit that picks up complex aromas of lilac, forest mushrooms and rosemary. It’s delicious already, though the oak feels more integrated with a day of air. With its restraint and classical balance, it should gain from a few more years in the cellar."
Winemakers Notes - "Our 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a rich, multi-faceted wine with great fruit and spice expression. It has a dark, cherry-red color and a complex nose of potpourri, ripe strawberries, cardamom, nutmeg and peat. It has a fruit-sweet attach, a fleshy mid-palage and notes of blond tobacco and coffee bean on the long and slightly tannic finish. Give proper cellaring, it will give drinking pleasure through 2024." 13.9% ABV.
