TOR KENWARD Proprietary Red, Oakville 2017

The 2017 Proprietary Red is yet another brilliant wine from Tor in this vintage. Made from a co-ferment of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from Vine Hill Ranch along with Cabernet Franc from a premier site in western Oakville, this is nothing short of sensational. It begins with striking aromas of ripe blackberries, red currants, sweet spices, graphite and violets underlined by hints of dried soil and tobacco nunaces adding further complexity. This continues to impress as it displays remarkable freshness and purity along with outstanding concentration and a gorgeous velvety mouthfeel that envelops the palate. This seductive red becomes more compelling with each minute in the glass as it displays a wonderful combination power and finesse all the way through the incredibly long finish. Readers will want to stock pile this beauty and watch it evolve over the next two decades.
