On the nose there is big, rich blackberry followed by notes of tar and currants. On the palate this wine is sneaky with a long finish. It begins with a very rich, sweet entry and though packed with tannin, it never shows those tannins – absolutely palate coating with venison, smoke, tobacco and cloves. The very ripe, sweet tannins allow the wine to truly coat the palate with richness. Extremely well balanced, this wine should age gracefully for years to come.
"Good full ruby. Cool, medicinal aromas of black cherry, blueberry and licorice, with a hint of violet providing lift. Juicy, sweet and very intense; less glyceral today than the Cimarossa but with terrific rocky verve and a seamless texture. Finishes with firm structure and excellent mineral lift and length. This is 100% cabernet, from a vineyard south of Dominus with similar exposition. "

"More chocolate, tobacco leaf, spice box, and black and red currant aromas jump from the glass of the 2007 Tor Cabernet Sauvignon Mast Vineyard. Pure, elegant, and clearly made in a more feminine, gracious style, this well-balanced effort will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring given its intensity and tannic strength. It should evolve for two decades or more
