Absolutely delicious, the 2014 is perfectly drinkable now. Great fruit, balanced with structure. Mellow tannins.

This is spicy and red fruit-driven with the slightest hint of camphor/menthol. Full-bodied with soft tannins, decent acid and quite a long finish. It’s wonderful. 1 hour decant.

Opened by accident (meant to grab the Napa Valley Blend). This needs some time to come together. Surprisingly lighter bodied than most of Tor Cabernets and a touch hot. That said, I️ can definitely see the potential here. Lots of black fruits, some cedar, vanilla and fine tannins.

Definitely mountain fruit. Dark blue fruit, slight anise notes, plush texture, and some tannins grip on the finish. Not shy but very balanced.

TGIF!!! This was a perfect ending to a long week. Smiles all around as @Mike R would say. Dark and brooding, the nose gives off blueberries mostly. A touch sweet on the palate with blue fruits and baking spice. Silky tannins, and a great acidity. Tor remains one of my favorite go-to wines - consistently excellent.

Nice full bodied wine. Great tannin structure and long finish. A bit of bacon fat on the nose and rich ripe cassis on the palate. High alcohol content, but well enough integrated to not feel it.

Lovely wines. Subtle for the AVA and well made. Nice integration of all aspects. Well made and well done. A keeper. Not a flashy wine but one to take home as a special treat.
