TOR KENWARD Cabernet Sauvignon, Tierra Roja Vineyard 2017

The 2017 Tierra Roja Cabernet Sauvignon is another magnificent wine from Tor in this vintage. Sourced from the gorgeous Tierra Roja Vineyard in Oakville, which is laced with big rocks and red soils. This fabulous Cabernet opens to inviting aromas of blackberries, black cherries and even some hints of blueberries which are woven together with graphite, spring flowers and spices with hints of tobacco leaf and mineral chracter. On the palate this is simply striking, as this medium to full-bodied Cabernet displays remarkable overall balance, structure and concentration. It goes on to impress with its wonderful freshness and purity, which is backed by a gorgoeus velvety texture and beautifully layered mouthfeel that seamlessly comes to an end with a long supple finish. Even at this early stage the 2017 is absolutely outstanding and looks to be one Tor's finest wines yet from this amazing vineyard.
