Torrin is one of the most underrated wines out of California. Maybe underrated is not the right word. I just don't understand why it doesn't get the buzz it deserves. To my mine it is one of the five top wineries producing Rhone varietals in California. Yes, the wines are big, but so far, they seem to be ageing just fine. This one is fantastic. These are big, warm climate Syrahs that are similar in style to SQN or Saxum. Purple in color. The nose is great with black raspberries, grilled meats, and hot tar. On the palate, this is lush with lots of fruit and medium tannins. Black raspberries layered with black pepper and charred earth. Good acidity. Long finish. Just a delicious wine but works with heartier fare as well. This should continue to mature for another five years or so and then stay there for another decade at least.
