2012 Torrin "Akasha" Paso Robles Syrah

SKU #1243544 96 points Robert Parker's 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)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Big, ripe and plush, this is a full-bore California style. Aromas of wild berry and toasty, spicy oak open to supple flavors of black raspberry, licorice and caramel that linger on the palate. (Web-2016) (TF) Inner quote mark
