Evil Twin's melding of Syrah and Cab makes for a super-rich, black-fruited beauty. The 2011 is showing well already.

2010 Wine Spectator - 93 points - Broad-shouldered but supple, wrapping its ripe cherry, plum and chocolate flavors in a blanket of fine tannins, finishing plush without getting too dense or weighty. Lingers enticingly. Best from 2014 through 2020. 600 cases made. - H.S.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

The 2009 vintage of the Gorman Evil Twin Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain is one more in a string of top rated Syrahs from this cult winery.

2009 Wine Spectator - 95 points - Firm in texture, this is expansive and generous in flavor, rolling its licorice-accented blackberry, cherry and tar flavors with focus and intensity against a layer of fine tannins. Shows depth and power, finishing long and vibrant. Best from 2013 through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 500 cases made - H.S.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Consistently, his highest scoring wine. Intense and full-bodied, needs cellaring or decant for several hours if you just have to try it now. This wine will reward the patient - forceful, seriously huge, big tannins match the dark, dense black fruit, earth, cedar, toast, spice, and fascinating mineral/floral high notes. - Avalon

This wine is featured in our 2011 Collector's Case, 12 bottles of the very best BIG RED wines made in the Northwest. Cayuse, Charles Smith Royal City, Sheridan Block 1 Cab, Gorman, Baer, Maison Bleue, and more.

The Collector's Case will be released later this month. Watch our home page - there are only 12 cases available.

2008 Wine Spectator - 95 points - Supple, focused and intense, a lithe mouthful of bright blueberry and plum tinged with green olive and spice notes, which swirl through the expressive finish. Tannins are present but not obtrusive, letting the flavors sail on and on. Drink now through 2015. - H.S.

66% Red Mountain Syrah, 34% Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Intense and full-bodied. 300 cases made.

Previous Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator 95 points!

Ripe, complex, expressive and deftly balanced for a big wine, brimming with spicy heirloom tomato and herbal overtones to the black cherry, blackberry and pepper flavors. Tannins are present, but they're not overwhelming. Tempting now, but just wait. Best from 2011 through 2017. 225 cases made. - H.S.
