Twomey 2017 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Location: Russian River Valley, California

Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Our first Pinot Noir, the Twomey Russian River Valley Pinot, was crafted to showcase the deep and bold flavors only found in the Russian River AVA.

Originally sourced from the Westpin Vineyard, our first vintages—2002, 2003 and 2004—were produced from two acres of Martini clone—the only acres that were not replanted after we entered our long-term lease in 2000. The inaugural 2002 vintage was also made at the Silver Oak Napa Valley Winery in Oakville.

Fun fact: The inaugural 2002 vintage was made at the Silver Oak Napa Valley Winery in Oakville, and current Chairman & CEO David R. Duncan and former Silver Oak Winemaker Daniel Barron did the punchdowns.

Wine Characteristics

We source from the Sebastopol Hills to the Middle Reach neighborhoods within the Russian River Valley AVA to achieve a balanced blend that is truly representative of the area. The resulting wine is complex with a ripe fruit profile of cherry and cola and a bold, layered structure typical of the AVA.
