Winemaker Notes:

The 2021 Vaca Ridge Cabernet is a fascinating combination of profiles. It has the cooler, more firm tannin and acid style of the west Rutherford hillside in combination with the warmer, more red fruit dominated style of the eastern Oakville hillside. This is loaded with bittersweet chocolate, Texas brisket, and a touch of wet graphite on the finish. This is the wine to be savored with food, preferably red meats or maybe very hearty Italian meat based dishes.

The best value in the Tor lineup—at least for the moment—is the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Vaca Ridge Vineyard, from the east side of Oakville. It includes 15% Cabernet Franc, giving the nose some dried-herb complexity to go with scents of crushed stone and mixed red and black cherries. In the mouth, it's full-bodied and concentrated, supple and rich, with a long, tannic finish.

Blackberries and black cherries with black currants. Cedar undertones. Touch of wood. Medium to full body, with juicy fruit and creamy fine tannins that show lovely length. A white pepper and slate undertone. Minerally. New bottling from here. Drink in 2025 and beyond.
