TOR KENWARD Proprietary Red, Oakville 2014

The 2014 Oakville Red is a simply dazzling blend from Tor Kenward and winemaker Jeff Ames, which is composed of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each of these varietals beautifully showcase their individual characteristics as they take shape and form the striking aromas of fresh blackberries and cassis along with spices, tobacco, leather, dried earth and a gorgeous fresh violet character, which all come together and soar from the glass. On the palate this is well structured, possessing a wonderful rich, voluptuous mouthfeel and impeccable overall balance and depth. It continues to impress with its outstanding focus and layers of beautiful ripe dark fruits, spices and tobacco notes expanding on to the long, supple finish. This displays exceptional purity and I expect this to continue to evolve over the course of the next decade and beyond. That being said, even at this young age this is already absolutely compelling.
