TOR Cabernet Sauvignon, Melanson Vineyard 2014

Tor Kenward seems to have done it again with another sensational Cabernet Sauvignon in 2014. This time from the Melanson Vineyard in Pritchard Hill, where the vineyard is situated on steep hillsides directly across from Colgin’s Estate vineyard. This wine is made from select barrels of fruit from this hillside vineyard and aged in a mix of new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels. As this slowly begins to open it releases wonderful aromas of black cherries and dark currents which are woven together with graphite, spices, dark chocolate, cigar box and a subtle loamy note all coming together beautifully. On the palate this is full-bodied with a gorgeous polished texture and remarkable concentration and depth. This continues to impress with layers of ripe dark fruits, spices and chocolate notes which burst on to the the long, supple finish. While this is nothing short of a complete success, today it seems to be the most reserved of all Tor’s outstanding wines in 2014, however there is absolutely no doubt this will continue to evolve remarkably for many years to come. Only 50 cases made. (Best 2019-2036) - January, 2017(JD)
