“Tasted out of barrel, the 2018 Proprietary Red Oakville checks in as a mix of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Petit Verdot that as all co-fermented and spent an extended period on skins. It has beautiful purity in its crème de cassis, crushed rocks, earth, and tobacco and leafy herbs. Deep, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and seamless, it's a brilliant, elegant, classic wine that's going to benefit from just short-term cellaring and evolve beautifully.” - Jeb Dunnuck

“The 2018 Tor Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is sensational. Offering a wonderful sense of elegance and sheer class, this fabulous Cabernet instantly impresses with its pretty aromatic profile of black cherries and crème de cassis which are woven together with graphite, spring flowers, licorice and exotic spices that all slowly take shape in the glass. On the palate this is medium-plus to full-bodied, with beautifully polished tannins that provide excellent structure. It continues to impress with its incredible overall balance of ripe fruit and lovely underlying acidity that results in a remarkable fresh character which persists all the way through the spectacular finish. This is an absolutely marvelous Cabernet Sauvignon from Tor that should go on to evolve gracefully for many years to come.” - International Wine Report
