2010 Torrin "The Banshee" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1144464 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre, the 2010 Banshee is showing every bit as spectacular from bottle as it did from barrel. Deeply fruited, with notions of blackberry, mineral, licorice and hints of flowers, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, seamless and elegant profile that builds in richness and depth with air. Loaded with fruit, yet also savory, complex and nuanced, with superb overall concentration, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should see its 20th birthday in fine form. Drink 2015-2030. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2013)

93-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark All from the estate vineyard and a blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache, and 10% Mourvedre, the 2010 Torrin The Banshee sports a richer, fuller profile with loads of black currant and blackberry styled aromas intermixing with licorice, ground pepper, and superb underlying minerality. Full-bodied and impeccably put together on the palate, with brilliant purity and masses of ripe tannin, this serious 2010 will need 2-3 years to integrate, and should age effortlessly for upwards of 15+ years.

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Heady aromas of cassis, blueberry, pipe tobacco and lavender are expansive and strikingly precise. Dark berry flavors show superb depth and power but maintain freshness thanks to a bright mineral quality. Really stains the palate, finishing with sweet floral pastille notes and outstanding length.
