Twomey 2010 Pinot Noir, Bien Nacido Vyd. Santa Maria Valley
From Silver Oak comes this Twomey Vineyards Piont Noir. Grapes are sourced from the iconic Central Coast vineyard, Bien Nacido. The backbone of this wine comes from Blocks 1, 7 and 9, all organically farmed hillside plantings. There are also grapes from Block N, one of the original 1972 plantings of own-rooted Martini clone, a vineyard practice rare anywhere in the world. The wine was aged 15 months sur-lie in French oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points saying “Twomey has turned to various coastal sources for Pinot Noir for years, with mixed results. Finally, with this Bien Nacido bottling, they've found something worth repeating. It shows that vineyard's balanced structure, with fine acidity and tannins framing cherry, red currant and cola flavors laced with minerality.”
