Showing even a bit better than a previous bottle the 2006 Torbreck Run Rig delivers a dense complex bouquet of cassis and licorice infused blackberry styled fruits to go with complementing complex aromas of peppered meat underbrush and subtle tobacco. Full bodied and decadent on the palate with loads of fruit but also superb balance and serious length this is approachable and stunning now but should easily evolve and age gracefully for 15+ years.

A saturated purple color it sends up a complex bouquet of cigar box Asian spices incense bacon plum and blueberry. On the palate it admirably combines power and elegance. Layers of succulent fruit are nicely complemented by the wine's generous framework. Another 4-6 years of cellaring should fill it out with style.

A very fragrant bouquet attests to the influence of viognier which also may be part of the reason why the palate does not show the high alcohol and is simply supple and velvety even showing a hint of spice. Shiraz.

Heady aromas of black raspberry blueberry pie potpourri sandalwood and patchouli with a strong mineral quality adding urgency. Completely stains the palate with deep black and blue fruit flavors but possesses uncanny energy picking up smoky mineral and Asian spice nuances with air. At once creamy and nervy; this hits every corner of the palate. The floral element returns on the finish which features sappy boysenberry and candied licorice qualities and leaves nervy spice and mineral notes behind. Where are the tannins? Offers an extraordinary combination of concentration power and elegance.
