Big, dense GSM from Paso. Very young and tightly wound but already shows wonderful fruit and aromatics.

2010 Vintage. 15.5% Alcohol. 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre. Not sure I would cellar longer based on this bottle. Great to enjoy now. Rose, strawberries and blackberry on the nose with no tannins and velvet mouthfeel. Liquid berry pie, but not sweet.

2010 Vintage. 15.5% Alcohol. Tobacco, leather, licorice, blackberry on the bouquet. Plush red fruits. 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre. Still a bit of tannin so no rush.

Great from start. Soft and well integrated. In good spot right now.

My first experience with Torrin and this is good stuff. Stylistically more similar to Linne Calodo than Saxum and surprisingly well balanced.

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.

A very nice 2010 blend. Good fruit and structure. Drinks well right out of bottle.
