TOR Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Mast Vineyard

TOR Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Mast Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $75.00 per bottle

Description: The color is a blood red/garnet with no lightening at the rim. On the nose there is a blast of ripe boysenberry, cherry, earth, peppermint and cloves. On the palate this wine has a wonderfully palate coating entry with firm but sweet tannins that reach all the way to the back of the palate, roasted meat juices, blackberry, bitter sweet dark chocolate and acidity that serves to carry the flavors to all parts of the palate and extend the length on the wine. This is immediately approachable but has the stuffing to hold in the cellar for years.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
