This Cabernet is sourced from the Tierra Roja Vineyard in East Oakville, and it is another fantastic showing from Tor in this vintage. The Cabernet stays a bit longer on its skins than Tor's mountain Cabernets, it also spends about 18-20 months in new Taransaud barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The result is a simply sensational Cabernet which opens to striking aromatics of ripe blackberries and dark currants woven together with lovely floral nuances. Full-bodied and opulent, this impresses on the palate with remarkable depth and concentration as well as its gorgeous inner sweetness, and round, seamless texture making it impossible to resist. Beautifully ripened flavors of crème de cassis and dark fruits merge with chocolate which expand beautifully through the long finish.
