However it is not out of line with what wines of similar quality sell for throughout the world unfortunately a reality. There are nearly 600 cases of the 1998 Run Rig which is made from vines averaging between 50 and 130 years of age. It is a blend of 97% Shiraz and 3% Viognier aged completely in French oak for approximately 18 months prior to bottling.

Uncanny the way the lapel-grabbing plum berry and exotic spice flavors play out on a remarkably supple and elegant frame with the fine tannins weaving through the finish so deftly you can easily miss them.

Uncanny the way the lapel-grabbing plum berry and exotic spice flavors play out on a remarkably supple and elegant frame with the fine tannins weaving through the finish so deftly you can easily miss them. A triumph of gorgeous fruit and classy winemaking. Best from 2003 through 2013. 580 cases made. (HS)

Flamboyantly nuanced nose combines cassis black raspberry peat bitter chocolate baking spices and suggestions of exotic fruits. Silky and glyceral in the mouth but with a firm spine of acidity giving the wine freshness and structure. Very complex flavors of crystallized berries violet and game are lifted by the wine 3% viognier component. Truly coats the entire palate with the thoroughly ripe tannins spreading out horizontally and the superripe but fresh fruit and floral flavors going on and on. An extraordinary shiraz that appears to be built to age.(The Grateful Palate Oxnard CA) 95(+?) points
