TOR KENWARD Cabernet Sauvignon, Cimarossa Vineyard 2011


2013 Top 100 - Rank # 4

The TOR Cimarossa Cabernet Sauvignon is incredible showing in 2011. It offers intoxicating aromas and flavors that come in layers, starting off with a generous dose of freshly crushed dark cherries and crème de cassis, which are followed by chocolate and graphite, before finally folding in some mineral and floral notes that add a sense of freshness. The ripe, concentrated fruit is well polished and bursts on to the long, plush finish that is laced with dark fruits and chocolate, which seems to carry on and on. This is a fantastic wine and really becomes expressive with air contact, but ultimately this will need a bit more bottle age before it will be at its best. Overall, this is a phenomenal effort by Tor and winemaker Jeff Ames. (Best 2016-2030) - December, 2013 (JD)
