2012 Torrin "Akasha" Paso Robles Syrah

SKU #1243544 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2012 Akasha (100% Syrah) boasts a stunning nose of blue fruits, Asian spices, pepper, and violets, and is medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced, classically styled, and incredibly long. The 2012 vintage can be a touch hit or miss in Paso, but this does everything right, is still incredibly youthful, and offers a killer amount of pleasure. It should hit maturity in another 4-5 years and drink nicely for a decade or more. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Akasha (which I had incorrectly listed as James Berry Vineyard in the past) is 100% Syrah from Scott's estate Torrin Vineyard. It offers sensational purity and depth in its black raspberry and cassis fruits, graphite, dried violets and crushed rock bouquet. This gives way to a full-bodied, voluptuous and seamless Syrah that has no hard edges, building tannin and a blockbuster finish. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining purple. Powerful, deeply pitched aromas of blackcurrant, violet, licorice and woodsmoke, with a peppery topnote and a hint of sassafras. Sweet, smoky and broad on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors and a suave floral pastille flourish; showing a lot of upfront, fruit-driven sex appeal and no rough edges. Finishes very long, with outstanding clarity and supple tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2015)
