@Howard Greenfield Need to try it again. Did you visit the winery. The entire collection was pretty awesome.

Agree- tasted with Scot Hawley. Great tasting in a beautiful site- all the Torrin wines showed well but we loved the Pinots too

My Favorite Neighbor

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Shay A

Last of my bottles. This has a profile that seems to allow for early drinking, and the tannin and acidity here don’t make me regret finishing these (though I’m sure this will be just fine for 5+yrs in this type of profile).

Between a 92-93 here. One of my bottles poured for a big Paso theme (2010 Epoch Block B, 2015 Torrin Akashi, 2012 Saxum JBV, and others), this was close to pop and pour. When I first had this two years ago, it had a reductive/smoked meat profile on the nose that has disappated. Aromatics show lots of black cherry, black raspberries, amaretto, baking spices and espresso. Quite perfumed. The palate is juicy and lush, with more high toned black fruits, cedar, a roasted character and a lip smacking jamminess on the finish. Unabashedly Paso.

As an aside, it’s crazy how these can be found around $50 now after Constellation bought this label out...I paid $75! Good value at $50, not so good at $75.

The ‘16 was amazing. ‘17 not as much


Le Devoir Syrah Graciano Blend 2017

2017 Vintage. 16.1% Alcohol. While watching Scott and Viquel’s video review of the latest releases, Gail wanted some wine so I stopped it to get this baby. Enjoyed while watching the rest although Le Devoir was the earlier release. Interesting to have a blend of 76% Syrah and 24% Graciano. Nice fruit but we’ll try to cellar these a bit. — 6 months ago

Sine Qua Non

Testa dei Cherubini Eleven Confessions Vineyard Grenache

2014 Vintage. 16% Alcohol. Needs a bit more time but extremely enjoyable. First time we’ve seen a white wax seal on any SQN. Part of Gail’s birthday celebration. With black truffles on house made fettuccine at Il Cortile in Paso Robles. First wine from that wooden six pack. After a day of tastings at Torrin, McPrice Meyers, Fulldraw, Booker and Benom, had to be a special bottle to stand out! Paso rocks! — 2 months ago
