Wine: 2001 Tor Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 4
Rutherford, Napa, North Coast, California, USA
Cabernet Sauvignon (a dry red
I thought the Pomerol-like succulence, hedonistic forwardness, and gorgeously
proportioned, seamless 2001 Tor Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 4 to be even better
than the West Block, although it probably will not be as long lived. It possesses
plenty of tannin, but it is barely noticeable. A deep ruby/purple color is followed
by a sumptuous perfume of melted licorice, black cherry liqueur, cedar, and spice
box. Intense, impeccably well-balanced, and pure, it will benefit from 1-2 years
of cellaring, and keep for 12-15.
