Tor Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja Vineyard 2017

VINEYARD Drive the Oakville Cross Road to the Silverado Trial, then directly look forward and up. This is
Tierra Roja, a four-acre jewel of a hillside vineyard. Great neighbors – Backus, Screaming Eagle, Maya and Rudd.
Dotted with big rocks, the soil is definitely roja (very red). You might expect the wines to be massive, but they
are perfumed, dark and complex, in the style of Screaming Eagle. Linda Neal has been tending this jewel of a
vineyard since 1987. Today Neal sells her fruit to no other winery but ours. It was a ling wait until we finally
released our first TOR Tierra Roja Cabernet in 2010.

WINEMAKING Tor’s favorite Tierra ROja to date, this is the second
barrel selection, more focused on darker fruits. You could look at this as the
Reserve Tierra Roja.

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES The 2017 Tierra Roja shows
more red fruits that the other vineyard designated Cabernets in 2017 but for
this vineyard that is typical. This year though the black fruit component is a
VERY black fruit profile with blackberries, brisket bark and road tar. As
always the tannin profile is quite sweet and supple. This is probably one of
the most seamless Tierra Rojas we have made and should have an accordingly long life with good storage.
