TOR Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Vine Hill Ranch’ 2019
5 in stock
Block 7 is the gravelliest block in Vine Hill Ranch, with mature vines planted around twenty years ago, giving a wine of singular structure, depth and definition. Classic TOR Winemaking, this wine is an extraordinary display of Napa Valley Cabernet. Matured in a mix of Taransaud and Darnajou small French oak barrels for twenty months, then bottled without fining or filtration.
The 2019 Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet is again one of the best examples of terroir. Every time I try it it just simply tastes like Vine Hill and nothing else. This years shows then classic Vine Hill dried herbs and roasted red meats with sage, basil and fennel. This is slightly more black fruited on the palate than most 2019 Cabernets which were more red fruits. The amazing texture and balance continues to resonate through the long silky finish.
