Twomey Cellars

The Duncan Family of Silver Oak established Twomey in 1999 to pursue the discovery of varietals in California beyond Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. Twomey uses the same philosophy that has guided Silver Oak since its founding in 1972: make exceptional, food-friendly wines that are deliciously drinkable upon release. From their wineries in Calistoga and Healdsburg, Twomey strives to create unique, approachable wines to be enjoyed with friends and family.

Twomey 2013 Russian River Pinot Noir

Our 2013 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is a well-structured expression of classic Russian River Valley fruit. It has a dark red-rose color and a nose that displays succulent fruit, violets, strawberry jam and a hint of rosemary. The wine has a fruit-sweet attack and a voluptuous mouth-feel with echoes of berry fruit and cola on the palate followed by a long finish with a touch of grip. This is a wine with great detail and complexity.

Twomey 2010 Merlot

Our 2010 Soda Canyon Vineyard Merlot is a vivacious wine that displays ideal ripeness from a uniquely cool California vintage. It has a dark garnet color and a complex nose of cherry liqueur, dark chocolate, pipe tobacco, lavender, cloves and hazelnut. On the palate, it has a velvety mouthfeel, a full body, beautiful acid balance and a long, juicy finish. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2027.

Twomey 2014 Sauvignon Blanc

Our 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is a multifaceted wine that combines the best elements of our four estate vineyards. It has a light straw yellow color and an enticing nose of kaffir lime, pear, elderberry, crystalized ginger and wet slate. The full palate is highlighted by a sweet attack which is deftly balanced by fresh, vibrant acidity and a purity of fruit. This layered, complex, well-knit wine has an extremely long finish with echoes of citrus, stone fruit and minerality.
