2009 Torrin "Akasha" Paso Robles Syrah

SKU #1088411 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining purple. Powerful aromas of black raspberry and cassis, with complicating notes of smoked meat, candied lavender and minerals. Deeply pitched, velvety and assertively flavored, with a deep dark berry preserve character enlivened by a strong kick of cracked pepper on the back. Turns spicier on the finish, leaving behind floral pastille, spicecake and licorice notes. This potent wine has the energy of Pinot Noir. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Gorgeous aromatic intensity, superb richness and an exotic, full-bodied personality define the 2009 Akasha. This is the most structured of Torrin’s 2009s. Hints of mint, violets and spices flesh out on a finish supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins. The 2009 is 95% Syrah and 5% Grenache, 85% Torrin Vineyard and 15% James Berry Vineyard, partially fermented with whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2012)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Smooth and seductive, with fresh wild berry, spice and floral scents. Medium- to full-bodied, gaining richness, depth and density on the finish, where the tannins are gripping. Inner quote mark (5/2012)
