Tor Syrah Rogers La Herradura Vineyard Napa Valley 2015

SAVORY. TOOTHSOME. The spine-tinglingly, ambrosial ‘15 TOR Syrah (Wine Spectator 94 points!!) has landed! How do we do it??! The staff has been filling up their virtual carts already, best advice we can give is...HURRY! What a price!!

By now, many of you hardcore LB fans know and lust after the rich, fleshy, beautiful wines from Tor Kenward and his rockstar winemaker Jeff Ames. Google some of the press on Tor and Jeff’s other wines (Rudius in particular) and you’ll get a sense of how much critical acclaim surrounds these guys!! BUT. You are probably not prepared for the wave of savory Syrah flavor that is going to envelop you the moment you pull the cork out, but since we’ve been sipping since way too early this morning, let us regale you!

Do you EVEN blackberry, yo?? We’re talking unrestrained wild blackberry and black cherry extract, with a wild edge of olive and meaty, “umami” notes, backed up by toasty-spiced French oak, with a long and highly complex finish with all manner of lip-smacking, deep flavors. Wow! Another blockbuster! 94 POINTS, best price on Earth!

Don’t miss! We got less than last year!

Over the last four decades, I’ve walked almost every corner of the Napa Valley striving to understand exactly what makes a great wine. When I founded TOR Wines, the plan was simple. Our wines would come from only the best blocks in great vineyard sites I knew and revered.

About The Producer

We make great wines simply because we love making them. Wine is irresistible, it is fun, and it is about sharing passion, good fortune and community.  TOR exists today because of the relationships we’ve cultivated over decades with mentors, grapegrowers and friends. This is indisputable: Tor knows a great vineyard. Less is always more when it comes to bottling some of the best grapes on the planet. In the tussle between the will of nature and the winemaker – our work is staying out of the way. 

We focus on single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines, cuvées and Bordeaux varietals—each wine is handmade and bottled in a very small quantity. Our secret is to stay out of the way, not to manipulate—preserve a place in time, capture it in a bottle.

The TOR winemaking team has been together since the beginning. Jeff Ames is winemaker, and we share a simple rule— the vineyard is what we showcase, not a heavy winemaker’s hand. Each wine is nurtured to bottle unfiltered and unfined.
