Tor's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Hillside Tierra Roja Vineyard emerges from the upper section of the vineyard. Poorer soils on this part of the property yield small berries an wine with a distinctly darker profile vis-à-vis the straight Tierra Roja Cabernet. Inky, plush and voluptuous, with terrific energy backing up the fruit, the 2016 is positively stellar. Don't miss it.
