Torbreck 'RunRig' Shiraz-Viognier 2005

Quick Overview

98+pts- Robert Parker

95pts - Wine Spectator

95pts - Jeremy Oliver

"Torbreck’s flagship is the 2005 Run Rig, a 97% Shiraz cuvee sourced from 120- to 160-year-old vines with 3% finished Viognier added before bottling. It spent 30 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple/black in color, it has a kinky, exotic bouquet of fresh road tar, smoke, lavender, black pepper, game, blueberry, & black raspberry. Full-bodied & opulent on the palate, the wine is dense, packed, & unevolved. It will continue to open up over the next 10-12 years & drink well through 2040 in the style of a Chapoutier Hermitage. If it develops as I think it will, it will be a candidate for perfection down the road." - Robert Parker

"Firm, focused, highly aromatic & packed with flavor, offering floral accents to the dense blackberry, cherry & mineral flavors that linger on the refined finish, where the grip needs cellaring to loosen. Shiraz & Viognier. Best from 2011 through 2017." - Wine Spectator
