The 2018 Melanson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Tor is simply brilliant in this vintage. Melanson vineyard sits high on Prichard Hill and is surrounded by some of Napa’s most iconic wineries. This stunning Cabernet immediately impresses with its seductive aromas of ripe blackberries and black currents which are accented by nuances of sage, spices, tobacco, graphite, dark chocolate, charcoal notes that burst from the glass. On the palate this possesses a wonderful full-bodied, plush texture, with incredible concentration and a deep layered core that is laced with beautifully ripe dark fruits which resonate through the long supple finish. While this is already an absolute pleasure to drink, it also has the potential to age gracefully for years to come.
