Silky, fine grained tannins. Loads of red and blue fruits. Fine acidity. Long finish with hints of spice, violets, and touches of cedar. Drank great for 4 days in a row.

Compliments to Jeff Ames and Tor Kenward for turning out yet another delicious wine.
Not my preferred style but this should have lots of fans out there...

Rich, dense, plush texture, blue fruit, structured but the fruit and texture make it very accessible now.

This is how we pre-game! Wow! Amazing. May be my favorite Tor yet. The nose is literally intoxicating - I imagine it's similar to the smell in the air when walking down a gravel path lined with blackberry bushes. This is super rich and dense - blackberry, raspberry, creme de cassis and a touch of brown sugar on the palate with a distinct minerality. Smooth tannins balanced with nice acidity. Long finish - L-O-N-G. I love Tierra Roja Cab but what Jeff Ames and @Tor Kenward do with this vineyard is just superb.

I feel like I say this all the time, but Tor's wines just keep getting better and better. This is one of my favorites from Linda Neal's vineyard in Oakville - dense with strong flavors of cassis, mocha, dark berries, sweet spices and a touch of cedar. This is silky smooth and beautiful now but has a long life ahead of it.
