2016 Torrin "Akasha" Paso Robles Syrah

SKU #1456595 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark (98+) The first vintage released under the Central Coast AVA, as it includes fruit from Bien Nacido, Hawks Hill, and Shadow Canyon, the 2016 Syrah Akasha is as always 100% Syrah that spent 22 months in 60% new French oak. This saturated purple-hued beauty boasts a phenomenal bouquet of black and blue fruits, scorched earth, ground pepper, bouquet garni, lavender, and crushed rocks. Rich, full-bodied, incredibly powerful and concentrated on the palate, yet also perfectly balanced, it has plenty of gamey, marine-like nuances as well as classic Syrah peppery meatiness. It's another magical Syrah from Hawley that will probably merit a triple-digit score in 3-4 years and keep for over a decade. 98+ Inner quote mark (10/2019)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Inky purple. Sexy, expansive aromas of dark berry liqueur, exotic spices, vanilla and incense; a smoky mineral topnote adds urgency. Sappy, sweet and energetic on the palate, showing strong lift and sharp delineation to the spice-tinged cassis, cherry and floral pastille flavors. At once rich and lively, displaying serious power on the impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, which leaves a suave floral note behind. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
