The 2017 Melanson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Tor is absolutely magnificent and may be Tor’s finest Cabernet yet from this gorgeous property situated high on Pritchard Hill. It begins with a stunning aromatic profile of red & blue fruits, graphite and fresh spring flowers all taking shape. This goes on to display incredible depth and concentration with beautifully polished tannins that provide serious structure, giving way to a core of ripe dark and red fruits that expand through the long finish. The 2017 should evolve gracefully for decades and should only become more compelling as it continues to develop over time. Another total success from Tor and Winemaker Jeff Ames on this exceptional Cabernet.
