May 10, 2016 - Tart blackberry with a chocolate coating. Bulky tannins help it from becoming dessert. Enjoy.

December 3, 2015 - Two hour decant, and still very tight. Gravel, chocolate, and wild dark fruit on the nose. Massive structure, yet still very smooth. Not syrupy or overly sweet. Great example of quality paso fruit.

September 1, 2015 - This is my first experience with Torrin and I think this is a fantastic wine from a relatively new producer. It is very plush and dark fruit driven with supple tannins and hints of charcoal and leather on the back end. In the stylistic spectrum of GSM blends in Paso, I would place it most similar to Linne Calodo. Rich, but still balanced enough to pair well with food, especially with game meats. I would love to have this with a meal at Villa Creek.

July 2, 2015 - Nose has camphor, dark berry fruit and floral notes. Great big palate brings plum and more dark fruits. Still some tannins but almost hitting its window. Very nice. A little heat on the finish takes it down a tad. 93/94 Probably could have decanted longer.
