Torbreck RunRig 2010
Deep garnet-black with a hint of purple to the color, the 2010 RunRig taunts at first with a slightly closed nose before it engages with subtle kirsch, preserved plum, dried mulberry and Christmas cake notes intermingled with hints of violets, cinnamon stick, mocha and game. Full-bodied, rich and incredibly concentrated, the palate astonishes with incredible poise for such a big style as it perfectly balances the wine's generous fruit flavors with firm, velvety tannins and seamlessly vibrant, lively acid. It finishes with incredible persistence. Delicious now, it should drink best 2016 to 2028+.
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. Best after 2016. 384 cases imported.
