“The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet is a mountain-fruit, dominant blend that shows the amazing texture and structure that is to be expected from 2016. This is all dark fruits and meats on the nose. On the palate, there is fantastic richness, mouth-coating tannins and sweet fruit.” - Jeff Ames, TOR Winemaker

Vintage Notes: 
“To put it simply – this was one of our great modern vintages in the Napa Valley. It almost had a Bordeaux feeling to it – moderate rainfall for all but three months before the real rains arrived in October. By then, everything was in the barn. No significant heat spikes, which made for a very long even growing season. The only complaint I had with all our vineyard sites was, I wish I had harvested more grapes. Cluster size and weights were down, and we were 20% off of average when we finished picking. It was one of those years you wish you just had more grapes. Spectacular quality, both reds and whites. The wines have deep colors, structure, concentration, and depth of flavor.” - Jeff Ames, TOR Winemaker
