Torbreck The Struie 2012
Wine AdvocateA blend of Shiraz from the Eden Valley and Barossa, the 2012 The Struie has a deep garnet-purple color and notes of baked cherries, dried mulberries, prunes and dried herbs with hints of menthol and pepper. Very big, full and concentrated in the mouth, the flavors are evolving and expanding gracefully, framed by chewy tannins and ample freshness, finishing long.
Wine SpectatorDense, focused and brimming with plum and blackberry flavors, overlaid with wafts of smoke and licorice that come together smoothly on the fine-grained finish. Shiraz. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases made.
