This is gorgeous wine with terracotta, roses, light iron and strawberries. Very perfumed. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a long, long, bright finish. From a favorite vineyard. Drink now or hold.
Tor's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja Vineyard will challenge readers' perceptions about the year. It boasts striking depth and intensity supported by beams of minerality. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2011 Tierra Roja is dark, powerful and built for cellaring. The impeccable, polished finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. This is another drop-dead gorgeous effort from Tor. Yields were just 1.5 tons per acre. (AG)
Enticingly graceful and polished, presenting a rich core of blackberry, plum and wild berry notes, with shades of black licorice, anise and mocha woven within. Ends with ample tannic weight and presence, bolstered by sustained fruit and oak flavors. Best from 2015 through 2023. (JL)
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja Vineyard (150 cases produced versus twice that much in 2010) is made in a lighter, easygoing, consumer-friendly style with lots of black currant, bouquet garni and tobacco leaf characteristics, medium body, outstanding ripeness as the alcohols are relatively elevated, soft tannins and low acidity. This will be an endearing 2011 to enjoy over the next 7-8 years. (RP)
(from red soil rich in iron, on steep, terraced vineyards just east of the Oakville Crossroad; a bit of petit verdot was co-fermented with the cabernet): Bright red-ruby. Highly distinctive nose of red fruits, iron, fresh blood, hot rocks and musky mocha. Plush, sweet and truffley on the palate, offering sexy red berry and loamy soil flavors complicated by licorice and wild herbs. Has the concentration to buffer its dusty, building tannins but this wine will need at least a few years to harmonize in bottle. (ST) 92+
