This is a blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre. Torrin wines are bruisers, but at age 13, this one is just starting to calm down a bit. Inky purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has black raspberries, black cherries, black pepper, roasted meat and leather. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this is delicious. Loads of black raspberries and some plums with underlying char and a nice minerality. Long finish. This should drink well for another ten to fifteen years. It is nice on its own and would work well with a beef stew.
