Banshee 2009

The Rhone Report

2009 Torrin The Banshee (USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles) $60 The 2009 Torrin The Banshee, a blend of 60% Syrah, 22% Mourvedre, and 18% Grenache, showed brilliantly, possessing a dense, meaty core of cassis and blackberry fruit that‟s supported by loads of minerality, underbrush, violets, and charred beef aromatics. Full-bodied and powerful on the palate, with a round, sexy texture, superb balance, and a long finish, this will be approachable on release, and should continue to dish out pleasure over the coming decade. (95 pts.)

2009 Torrin Vineyard The Banshee Paso Robles
(60% syrah, 22% mourvedre and 18% grenache, all from Hawley's estate vineyard): Opaque purple. Impressively complex bouquet of blackcurrant, candied blackberry, fresh violet, cocoa powder and star anise. Dense and sweet but also bright and energetic, with potent dark berry, cherry-cola and licorice flavors that deepen with air. Fine-grained tannins add shape to the very long, wonderfully supple finish. For such a rich wine this is really lively. (93 pts)
