Torbreck The Factor 2013

Wine EnthusiastFull-bodied and plush yet vibrant and imbued with fresh fruit, this is simply superb. The oak is present but never dominant, adding brown sugar and cinnamon elements to blueberry, roasted meat, espresso and black olive notes. A hint of peppery spice also creeps into this impossibly complex wine. The finish combines power, length, freshness and dusty tannins, suggesting that while impressive now, it should age well. Drink now-2030.
Wine SpectatorIntense, with an oozing core of blackberry and wild blueberry flavors, accented by black walnut, espresso, cinnamon and black tea notes. Rich and velvety, focused and seamless, this ends on the elegant side, with a long finish. Shiraz. Drink now through 2026. 500 cases made.
