TOR CABERNET SAUVIGNON TIERRA ROJA VINEYARD OAKVILLE
TOR

Drive the Oakville Cross Road to the Silverado Trail, then look directly forward and up and you see Tierra Roja, a small four-acre hillside vineyard. The vineyard is dotted with big rocks, and the soil is roja (very red). Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja has a nose of blackberry pie, blackcurrants, black raspberries, earth, cedar and dried herbs. The palate is full-bodied, firm, grainy and lively with a great core of ripe, expressive black fruit, finishing long with a compelling herbal lift. 225 cases produced.
