Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 RunRig opens with wonderful perfume, and though this label usually contains a splash of Viognier, which could account for the fragrant nose, it has none this vintage. Redolent of violets and blueberries it is very spicy with an undercurrent of anise and Indian spices muddled with mulberries. Taut and elegant on the palate, it gives plenty of concentrated fruit flavor with crisp acid and firm, fine tannins. It finishes long. Drink it from 2016 to 2030+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Displays room-filling scents of dark fruit preserves, oak spices, violet pastille, cola and licorice, with a cracked pepper nuance adding lift. Deeply concentrated boysenberry and cassis flavors reach every corner of the palate and show superb energy and clarity for their power. Intensely perfumed and appealingly sweet on the finish, which features substantial but integrated tannins and persistent floral and fruitcake qualities. Built for the long haul, no question, but there's a lot of upfront sex appeal here as well; you could drink it now without guilt--or perhaps just a twinge.

Polished, ripe and seamless, playing out its layers and layers of dark berry, cherry, black olive and spice flavors on a rich, supple frame. The finish picks up mint and cream notes as it lingers effortlessly. A study in depth and opulence. Shiraz. Drink now through 2025. – HS

This is larger than life, super concentrated, black-fruited, dark and essency shiraz, befitting of maker David Powell; whilst the concentration is staggering, the underlying tannins and freshness provides length... This is larger than life, super concentrated, black-fruited, dark and essency shiraz, befitting of maker David Powell; whilst the concentration is staggering, the underlying tannins and freshness provides length, complexity and interest. Make no mistake this is big end of town, take no prisoners old vine shiraz pushed to the limit.

Full of dried raisins and Christmas cake character. Full body, lots of fruit, but turns fresh on the finish. More like an Amarone. Drink or hold.
