Perennially obsessed with quality, TOR wines only make a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon when they feel that the end result will be equally as brilliant as any one of their single vineyard wines. To that end, they carefully taste and work with all their vineyards to find the right blend, which will differ year on year. In 2016 the grapes for this wine come from Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain, and Soda Canyon, three distinct very steep, mountain vineyards. All three lots were fermented separately and then, after several blending trials, assembled. Like all TOR’s Cabernets, this was bottled both un-fined and unfiltered after 18 months in new French Oak. This wine shows the amazing texture and structure that is to be expected from 2016. All dark fruits and meats on the nose, the palate shows fantastic richness, mouth-coating tannins and sweet fruit. Delicious now, it will develop gracefully for a decade or more.
