Glass-staining purple. Powerful aromas of black raspberry and cassis, with complicating notes of smoked meat, candied lavender and minerals. Deeply pitched, velvety and assertively flavored, with a deep dark berry preserve character enlivened by a strong kick of cracked pepper on the back. Turns spicier on the finish, leaving behind floral pastille, spicecake and licorice notes. This potent wine has the energy of Pinot Noir.
Gorgeous aromatic intensity, superb richness and an exotic, full-bodied personality define the 2009 Akasha. This is the most structured of Torrin’s 2009s. Hints of mint, violets and spices flesh out on a finish supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins. The 2009 is 95% Syrah and 5% Grenache, 85% Torrin Vineyard and 15% James Berry Vineyard, partially fermented with whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. (AG)
Smooth and seductive, with fresh wild berry, spice and floral scents. Medium- to full-bodied, gaining richness, depth and density on the finish, where the tannins are gripping.
