Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Tight, intense and in need of aeration, showing smoke, tobacco, dried currant, anise and dusty sage, with mineral and underbrush. For all its richness and weight, this has a sense of elegance and grace.Drink Dates: 2008-2014Author: James Laube
Former Beringer Executive Tor Kenward launched his brand in the early 2000s and soon tapped Jeff Ames, the German-born, Memphis-raised protege of Thomas Brown to be his winemaker. Concentrating on red Rhone varieties (bottled under his Rock label) as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay (under TOR) from single vineyard sites, the wines have swiftly gained critically high acclaim. Production for any one wine rarely exceeds 200 cases.
