The delightful aromatics are released as soon as the wine is de-corked, with layers of raspberries, apricots and crème de cassis cloaking subtle hints of black olive and cherry. A dark, rich and concentrated palate flows from black fruits into brooding anise and dark chocolate and is bound by tight, grainy tannin. This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve. Although extremely intense, the wines power is cloaked within its balance and concentration, surging forth as an expansive sensation- the way only the greatest wines can.

Wine EnthusiastRunRig is always complex, and the 2012 doesn't disappoint in that regard, mixing bacony-meaty notes with hints of black olives and ripe plums. The tannins are supremely supple, but the acids are crisp, resulting in a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now-2030.

Wine SpectatorBig, broad and generous, this is a towering presence, layering sharply focused blackberry, dark plum, cherry and exotic spice flavors atop polished tannins. Has tremendous power and persistence. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2030. 450 cases made.
