Wine of the Week: Twomey Pinot Noir 2011 (CA) $50

By August 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Sonoma's Russian River Valley appellation enjoys a reputation for producing some of the region's best Pinot Noir and the 2011 Twomey Pinot Noir is made exclusively from Russian River Valley fruit, placing a focus on premium Pinot grapes.  Expect mesmerizing aromatics with chocolate covered strawberries and warm spicy notes leading the nose.

The palate profile is equally expressive with layers of strawberry and raspberry fruit enveloped in well-woven tannin and bright acidity.  This is a gorgeous Pinot Noir with plenty of palate appeal from the team at Silver Oak Cellars.  Consider pairing with a variety of fare including mushroom themes, best beef recipes, and salmon or poultry delights.
