Impressive. Very young and tight. A burst of To Kalon fruit to start, before bright acids and tannins kick in. Don’t be in a rush to drink it 😊. Tasted during the Vinous Learn Oakville seminar. — 4 months ago

WNH Christmas in July event.

I gave this a 2hr decant and that seemed to be about right. When pouring in to the glass, the transparency caught me off guard...it was like a heavy Pinot! Ruby red with a tinge of purple. The floral and potpourri aromatics leap from the glass and can be picked up a few feet away from the glass. Violets, sage, Black Forest Cake shavings, and ripe black cherries. On the palate, it sports some oak tannin, but the profile is crazy juicy and vibrant. Great acidity. Blackberries, scorched red and black fruits, cherries jubilee, and cedar round out the palate. The juicy acidity hangs around the finish for a good 30 seconds. This does a beautiful job of highlighting cab franc from the valley floor but also letting the vineyard shine through. I called this 2012-2014 Napa merlot/CF blend.

When this came from
@Carl Fischer , knowing we both love CabFranc, I secretly hoped he would send me this bottle (knowing his affinity for TOR and CabFranc). I figured there is no way he could have sent it to me knowing the price. I was elated to be wrong. What a wine, Carl! I owe you!

Celebrating Anne-Marie! Love you 😍
This wine is befitting my queen.
Almonds and citrus fruits on the nose. Palate is luscious, weighty and complex. Layers of green fruits, combine with oily mouthfeel and moderate acidity.
We need more Tor chardonnay in our cellar.
