The 2002 Run Rig (97% Shiraz and 3% Viognier aged in 100% new French oak) represents the essence of old vine Barossa fruit. Extraordinarily opulent and rich...it gets my nod as one of the most remarkable wines made in either the Southern or Northern Hemisphere. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous bouquet of apricots, honeysuckle, black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, and a hint of roasted meats. The wood has been soaked up by the wine's extraordinary concentration...Torbreck's wines continue to get better and better, combining the old vine ripe fruit of Barossa with a European sensitivity to elegance and balance...

Raspberry jam, alcohol, oak. Nice prototypical aussie shiraz. Enjoyed with steak. May actually need some time.

Not the same herbal bent as the descendants but great dark, stewed fruit character. Delicious jam!

大変しっかりした果実味、渋みは少ないが、パワフル。 肉料理と食べないと持て余しそう。 白須君プレゼンツ?
