Lot #781. Torrin Proprietary Red James Berry Vineyard 2013

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 97 WA.
"Coming from one of the true grand cru sites in the central coast, the 2013 Torrin James Berry Vineyard is an even split of Syrah and Grenache that spent 18 months in 50% new 400-liter puncheons. In addition, it will see 18 months in bottle before being released this fall. Possessing incredible purity and depth, with ultra-fine, yet ample tannin and full-bodied richness, this incredible blend yields sensational notes of black raspberries, crushed violets, red plums and spice aromas and flavors. These latest 2013s are hands down the greatest wines to date from winemaker Scott Hawley. In addition to superb tannin quality, they have brilliant purity of fruit and concentrated, balanced profiles that will allow them to evolve gracefully. In addition to the core lineup of the Akasha, Banshee, Mavin and Tsundere, Scott has expanded the lineup with the James Berry Vineyard (first vintage was 2012) and the new Shadow Canyon Vineyard Syrah, which comes from a cooler site on York Mountain, on the western edge of Paso Robles."
