2014 Tor Tierra Roja 750ml
Tasting Notes: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja came in out-of-bottle at the top of its range, which is always a good sign. This is a 4-acre vineyard on the red soil hillsides, just below Dalla Valle in the Oakville corridor. This is a sexy, beautiful, fragrant wine with plenty of scorched earth, blackcurrants and licorice, but copious quantities of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit. This is a beautiful wine to drink now and, like so many 2014s, over the next 20-25 years. Tor Kenward is using his vast experience in the wine industry and impressive palate to find exceptional terroirs and produce fascinating wines that merit serious attention...Kenward has an impressive array of 2014 reds, all of them showing as well as, or better, than I had predicted in my range of scores last year. " - Robert Parker (95 Points)
Winemaker's Notes: The 2014 Tierra Roja was fermented in a closed top tank for 20 days with no more than two pump-overs a day. This stays on its skins a little longer than the mountain Cabernets since the tannins of the East Oakville hillsides are so
sweet that there is no concern on over extraction. This is put into mostly new Taransaud barrels for about 18-20 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
