TOR CABERNET SAV MELANSON
NAPA VALLEY- MELANSON VINEYARD
From the Winery: As has been the case every year since 2013 when we started in this amazing site on Pritchard Hill, there is no mistaking Melanson in the line up of Tor Cabernets. There is always a more red fruited/brite side to Melanson as opposed to our West side Oakville Cabernets that are mostly black fruits. The dark fruit profile of this wine makes this one of the darker Melanson we have ever made yet it still retains the intense mountain driven charac- ter that have made this a marquee site on Pritchard Hill.
Winemaking: Melanson is a plusher, richer softer expression of a mountain Napa Valley Cabernet than our others. A very steep and rocky hillside vineyard this vintage proves to show minerality and intense dark fruits. We selected 100%Taransaud barrels for Melanson. The drinking window for this wine this wine will be very long. 93-95 points Robert Parker Wine Advocate.
