Intense, lifted aromatics of dense blueberries and blackberries dark chocolate all come to the fore with an opulent profile of mulberry plum and five-spice. A plush and velvety textured palate of red cherry and stone fruits, clove all interwoven with hints of dark chocolate. The complex layers and fruit characters continue to evolve in the glass with hints of ironstone, anise, blackberry and pepper all becoming more persistent in the finish. This densely textured Run Rig will certainly reward those with patience.

Restrained and elegant, opening up with ripe black and red fruit flavors. Touches of black licorice and black walnut liqueur plump up the sense of concentration. The tannins are dense but polished, never getting in the way of the harmony. Elements of clove and tobacco emerge on the finish. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2039. 161 cases imported.

Torbreck is known for its rich, powerful and unmistakably Barossa reds and the 2016 vintage doesn't disappoint. While addition of a little Viognier is more evident on Torbreck's Descendant wine than on here, the Shiraz offers a deep well of ripe plums and cherries, licorice, peppery spice and meaty earthy green-herbal nuances, along with plenty of toasty oak influence. The palate is plush, dense and oaky, gripped tightly by savory granular tannins. This needs time and plenty of it. Drink 2022-2039.
