Torrin Akasha Torrin Vineyard Syrah Grenache 2012

$69.99

From one of Paso Roble's up-and-coming superstars, this new release is extremely limited. The vineyard was planted by Justin Smith of Saxum and Eric Jensen from Booker.  Scott Hawley is owner and winemaker, with very small production each year.  96 Points Robert Parker: "The 2012 Akasha 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. It's a heavenly Paso Robles Syrah that needs a year or two in bottle and will evolve nicely through 2026...All of these 2012s from Scott showed the more savory, firm style of the vintage and will benefit from a year or two in bottle."

2012 Vintage. 16% Alcohol. 100% Syrah. Still could use some time but enjoyed as PNP.

Not a blend, 100% Syrah. Still like the 15 a bit more even without the bottle age this magnum has.

3h slow ox and 2012 Akasha is very enjoyable. Super solid effort year after year.
