2014 Banshee ($75) Sold Out
The 2014 Banshee is probably the most brash and unapologetic version of this wine since our inaugural bottling of the 2006 vintage. The Syrah Mourvedre dominate the wine with loads of charcuterie, smoke and salinity that somehow manage to meld flawlessly with an intense layer of blueberry cobbler that unfolds in the glass. The color is as saturated as the palate is intense. For those of you familiar with Torrin wines, the tactile presence of the wine on the palate is considered one of its most important attributes. Here the Banshee certainly delivers with remarkable richness and a silky texture from to back.
