Simultaneously incredibly rich and incredibly fragrant, the 2010 RunRig seems capable of aging at least another 15 years. Scents of violets and red berries combine with darker fruit, ample dried spice and hints of savory meatiness. It's a complete wine and one of the ultimate expressions of Barossa Valley Shiraz. (JC)
Deep purple-crimson; alcohol analysis can confuse, for the alcohol evident here seems little different to that of Descendant (15%), and the contribution of the Viognier to the Shiraz no less evident; the full-bodied palate is immensely rich and yet supple, the black and red fruits flowing through the length of the palate and into the aftertaste; oak and tannins are seamlessly welded into the fruit.
Opaque purple. A wild, highly perfumed bouquet displays scents of dark berry liqueur, incense, violet candy, fruitcake and licorice. Densely packed, palate-staining blueberry and cassis flavors are complemented by exotic star anise and cola qualities and lifted and focused by juicy acidity. Shows serious intensity and power on the remarkably persistent finish, which features velvety tannins, echoing dark fruit character and lingering florality. As usual, this was one of the stars of my annual Australia tastings. (JR)
A perplexing wine to evaluate, the 2010 RunRig (97% Shiraz and 3% Viognier) evolves rapidly once poured, going from slightly stewed and overoaked to a wine that shows considerable class within 20 minutes or so. Aromas and flavors of brown sugar, mocha and roasted meat give way to raspberry compote, while the creamy texture and supple tannins conceal the wine’s high alcohol level with ease. (JC)
This thick, dense and complex red offers a layer of fine tannins that swarm around a vibrant core of blueberry, plum and exuberant spice flavors that keep gaining momentum as they head into the long and powerful finish. This has presence and depth. In need of cellaring. Shiraz and Viognier. (HS)
