2014
FALL 2017 RELEASE. 100% SYRAH.   -SOLD OUT-

"Always 100% Syrah, the 2014 Akasha comes primarily from the Torrin Vineyard and was aged, on lees, in 60% new French oak for 18 months. Blackberries, graphite, scorched earth, pepper and loads of crushed rocks nuances make for a sensational Syrah that’s going to flirt with perfection with a few years of bottle age. While I've always loved this wine from Scott, the purity of tannin and balance in this vintage is at another level. Hats off to Scott for this insanely good Syrah."

Jeb Dunnuck:  99 Points.

Akasha is a word that represents the belief in an element from which all other natural elements; earth, wind, fire, and water are derived. For us at Torrin, Syrah was the element that drew us into the Templeton Gap and what is now Torrin Wine. From that, Grenache, Mourvedre, and other Rhone Varietal based wines have gloriously emerged.

Fall 2018 Release.  100% Syrah.

 

2013

95% SYRAH/ 5% GRENACHE.  -SOLD OUT-

The 2013 Akasha is rich and savory with fantastic mid palate weight and serious length on the finish.  This wine consistently pulls off a remarkable balance with much of the hedonistic pleasure warmer climate Syrah offers with the acid structure and more interesting secondary notes of cooler climate Syrah.

The Wine Advocate: 97 Points

"Leading off the lineup and just a killer Syrah that does everything right, Hawley's 2013 Akasha (there's a splash of Grenache in here as well) is getting up there with some of the top wines to come out of California. Coming from cooler, north and east facing slopes, and aged 18 months in 60% new French oak, its inky aromas and flavors of black currants, blackberries, smoked meats, earth and pepper. This full-bodied, concentrated and impeccably balanced beauty has fine tannin, no hard edges and blockbuster length. In short, it's a gorgeous wine I wish every reader could taste!"
