TOR Cabernet Sauvignon, Vine Hill Ranch 2017

2017 is the first vintage that Tor has produced a Cabernet Sauvignon from Vine Hill Ranch and it is a total beauty. The Cabernet is sourced from Block 7, which is one of the oldest blocks in the vineyard and it is nothing short of spectacular. Beautifully defined, this Cabernet offers up seductive aromas of fresh ripe dark currants, black cherries, graphite and violets with underlying nuances of tobacco, sweet spices, dark chocolate and hints of earth all soaring from te glass. On the palate this goes on to impress as it displays a wonderful combination of power and sophistication, as well as serious structure. This is ablsolutely seductive and continues to impress as it possesses remarkable concentration, backed by a gorgeous deep core of pure Cabernet fruit that expands through the incredibly long and beautifully polished finish. Overall, this is an utterly sensational wine and nothing short of a total success from Tor and his winemaking team on their first vintage working with this iconic site.
