Product Overview

The 2017 TOR Tierra Roja Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the only wine sourced from this jewel of a vineyard located between Backus, Screaming Eagle, Maya, and Rudd. This is arguably the most dense, structured, compelling, and potentially long-lived Tierra Roja yet, showing more dark fruits in this Tierra Roja than ones from the past, and again, it is multi-layered. Dark fruits, more density and structure, more back fruits than previous vintages, pure and alluring, spicy, with dried Mediterranean herb.

Appellation: Oakville AVA, Napa Valley

93 Points - Vinous
"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja Vineyard is pretty, sensual and wonderfully nuanced, with bright floral and spice notes that add depth. Medium in body and refined, the 2017 shows the more elegant side of Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. Based on its structure, the Tierra Roja looks to be a delicious medium-term drinker." -AG, Jan/2020

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"In 2017, for the first time, the Cabernet Sauvignon from Tierra Roja Vineyard was left on skins after the primary fermentation, "since it just kept getting better and better", according to Tor Kenward. It was aged in 100% new Taransaud barrels. Deep garnet purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Tierra Roja Vineyard gives up pronounced cassis, red currant jelly, raspberry leaves and dusty earth scents with nuances of unsmoked cigars, wild thyme and lavender. Medium-bodied, the palate has a super-firm backbone of chewy tannins and great freshness with taut, tightly wound fruit, finishing on a lingering savory note. 250 cases were made." -LPB, 10/31/19
