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 but playing it closer to the vest than the 2001 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. Fashioned from four sectors of Barossa (Maranaga Koonunga Hill Moppa and Greenock) it spent 30 months in primarily new oak and was bottled without fining or filtration. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020+.

Impossibly ripe musky dense aromas of dark cherry cassis compote blackberry confit molasses fruitcake violet pastille licorice and candied rose petal. Thick to the point of being a solid or at least a colloid with dense inky even resinous flavors of bitter chocolate creme de mure coffee liqueur licorice and black cardamom accompanied by a spice rack of accents. The finish seems to never let go which in this case is a good thing. Sticky palate-staining and amazingly dense a monument to this style of syrah...
