2010 Torrin "Tsundere" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1134412 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Another awesome effort is the 2010 Tsundere. A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Syrah, 24% Grenache and the balance Tannat, it dishes out massive amounts of fruit and texture, with notions of smoke, black currants, tobacco, leather and graphite all flowing to a full-bodied, pure and seriously concentrated 2010 that has no hard edges, sweet tannin and a knockout finish. As with Scott’s other 2010s, it needs another year or two of bottle age and will have 15+ years of longevity. Drink 2015-2030. (JD)  (8/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (40% cabernet sauvignon, 26% syrah, 24% grenache and 10% tannat): Opaque purple. Sexy aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate, smoky oak and violet. Broad, deep and sweet, with a firm spine of acidity lifting the flavors of dark berries, licorice and floral pastilles. Chewy tannins add shape and grip to the very long, spicy, penetrating finish. (JR)  (11/2012)

90 points Vinous

 The 2010 Tsundere is one of the fresher wines in the range, perhaps because of the significant presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. Rich, dark and sensual, the 2010 has plenty of depth but all of the fruit is beautifully supported by persistent veins of saline-infused minerality. The 2010 is Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat and Grenache. (AG)  (7/2013)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Weaves together a complex array of dark berry, road tar, mocha and cedar flavors, fanning out on the finish and maintaining persistence. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache and Tannat. Drink now through 2022.  (12/2013)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
