  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($75; 15.2% alcohol) Bright ruby. Currant, mocha and licorice on the nose, with strong rocky, smoky soil tones adding appeal. Dense and sweet but with lovely harmonious acidity lifting the black raspberry and mineral flavors. Very chewy, layered cabernet with terrific persistence. This has a moderate pH by Napa Valley cabernet standards (|3.7, max,| says Kenward), and thus it's quite firm for all its richness.

    Offers a pure, appealing beam of red currant-, red licorice- and cranberry-laced fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, focused and persistent, young and tight, ending with ripe, finely grained tannins.

    The 2006 Tor Cabernet Sauvignon Mast Vineyard is a Margaux-like effort displaying a huge fragrance of spring flowers, black currants, plums, and a hint of spice. Elegant, full-bodied flavors are intense and substantial, but neither heavy nor overweight. This beautiful, pure, well-balanced Cabernet should drink well for 20+ years.

    Very deep black fruits, perhaps a bit overpowering. I would expect 5 yrs of additional age would resolve the very jammy overall persona of the wine.

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.
