Fresh Off The Truck: 2018 Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Thursday, January 21, 2021

13.7% Alcohol

This is one of those wines where, as much as I still find numerical ratings useful as a bottom-line impression, the real point is describing what it's like.

It's not like I expected.

Given its association with Silver Oak I expected it to be oaky. It is not.
Given it's from the Russian River Valley I expected it to have cola notes. It does not.

It's lower in alcohol than some of the bruisers I admittedly enjoy in this category. It's medium-bodied and I'd say 40% opaque. It has appealing light floral and mild baking spice aromatics. It has a clean finish and is devoid of off-notes. 

It's a well made satisfying California Pinot Noir.

91/100 WWP: Outstanding

Not your tempo?
