Another stunning wine from Torrin. Still a bit young but starting to show some development especially with a few hours in a decanter. This is 50% Syrah, 26% Mourvèdre and 24% Grenache. Inky purple in color. The nose is great with a meatiness reminiscent of the northern Rhone but vibrant fruit that says California sunshine. There is also some black pepper, plums and slight floral notes. On the palate, this has a great texture. Black raspberry fruit intertwines with black pepper over a smoke and earth base. It is pretty big right now with firm tannins. This should continue to develop for another five to ten years and be good for a decade after that. If you like big wines, its fine to drink now. It will take hearty foods; grilled or roasted meats or veggies. Nothing delicate.
