serious bang for the buck. The latest 2013s and 2014s are all outstanding. However, recent vintages are pushing on the sweetness level, and in a number of cases, there’s obvious residual sugar in the wines."

"Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2014 Syrah Santa Barbara is a sexy, sweetly fruited and voluptuous Syrah that offers up a rockin' bouquet of blueberry, blackberry, violets and pepper. It should drink nicely on release and over the following 5-6 years."

Very light on tannins. Medium plus acidity. A lighter wine, more similar to the lightness of a Pinot Noir. A little alcohol burn on the throat. Finish is some fruit and black pepper.

fantastic that most of them have gone to blue chip names such as Duckhorn, Nickel & Nickel, and Beringer! They do keep a bit for themselves and what they make is gorgeous!

Just like the 2011, this is a HUGE wine! Deep purple. Rich, ripe aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice, and black pepper. Palate is mouth-coating with continued flavors of ripe blackberry, blueberry, black currant with lingering sweet spices and leathery tannins. Big finish. Drink now to 10-15 years.

characteristics bur rather the coming together of the many factors that make up Torrin Vineyard. For the 2011 Banshee, Torrin leaned heavily on a western slope they have planted to Mourvedre and Grenache. It is on a fairly unique trellis system that allows us to treat the vines more like head trained vines while keeping the density up and the yield per plant low. As a result they get incredibly consistent ripening throughout the block at lower sugar levels while harnessing an earth and spice layer unique to this hillside. Syrah from their north facing block is the foundation upon which the wine is built and supports the cast with ample fruit and richness keeping the complexities of wine friendly and inviting.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "The 2012 The Banshee Proprietary Blend is a big, full-flavored and intense wine that checks in as a blend of 40% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 25% Mourvedre. Aged 17 months in 30% new oak, with plenty of whole cluster, it has that same chalky minerality that is common in all of Scott's wines to go with lots of blueberry, black raspberry, herbes de Provence, tar and dried flowers. Savory, full-bodied, layered and beautifully made, with high-quality tannin, it's already drinking nicely, but will benefit from a few years of bottle age and have 10-15 years of overall longevity."

Torrin's 2011 Maven is a selection of Grenache from south facing slopes from two separate hills on their estate. While each hill is the same clonal selection, each has its own identity. Read More...
One hillside offers up vibrant red fruits and fantastic acidity and freshness, while the other is a bit darker and more rich and viscous throughout the palate. The combination of these two hillsides along with the addition of a small percentage of Syrah from a north face delivers a wine with fantastic balance and depth. The 2011 vintage includes roughly 30% whole cluster for added structure, spice, and intrigue. The wine was aged in large format French oak puncheons for 17 months prior to bottling and bottle aged for an additional 10 months prior to release.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "Moving more and more toward a 100% Grenache cuvee (the 2013 is all Grenache), the 2012 The Mavin is 91% Grenache and 9% Syrah that was roughly 30% whole clusters. It has a perfumed, floral streak in its sweet, red and black raspberry, cracked pepper, cumin and dried violet bouquet. This gives way to a full-bodied, supple and seamless 2012 that has silky tannin and a solid finish. Drink it anytime over the coming 6-7 years."

Winemaker Notes - This year’s vintage is intense, rich and structured. The wine opens up with aromas of roasted coffee, black licorice and tar, and a few minutes of air releases sweet, Read More...
distinct blackberry aromas.

This is a wine of weight and balance. The flavors are intense with extract of black currants and blackberry concentrate. A dusting of nutmeg and cracked peppercorns adds savory components while ample chewy tannin adds to the power and texture of the wine. The wine is almost purple-black in color. Thirty minutes of decanting will enhance the dark berry flavors. This blockbuster wine will go best with hearty flavors, like grilled and roasted meats, bitter vegetables, strong cheeses and anything with lots of garlic.

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "Vivid blueberry, licorice and blackberry aromatics leap out of the glass, but on the palate the flavors are dense and delicious, with touches of spice and vanillin that give this a profile of cobbler à la mode. Features dense tannins, but stays polished. Drink now through 2022. 208 cases made."

Eric Railsback.....As a whole, these impeccably made wines have lots of character, represent superb values in most cases, and are well worth checking out."

"I loved the Vallin 2013 Syrah Santa Ynez Valley. It has an almost Clape-like iron and mineral component to go with plenty of pepper, garrigue, smoked meats and dark fruits. Juicy, lively and textured, it's a beautiful Syrah that delivers both intellectual and hedonistic pleasure.
