($85; shiraz with 8% viognier) Roasted black cherry syrup on the nose, along with an exotic hint of apricot from the viognier. Sappy and fruit-driven, with liqueur-like fla vors of black cherry and black raspberry. Densely packed and sweet. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins that turned a bit dry with aeration.

Made from nine year old cuttings sourced from the RunRig vineyard, this 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier is cofermented and then aged for 18 months in two and a half year old barrels originally used for RunRig. Opaque purple black colored wine with a few thick and moderately pigmented legs. A somewhat tight but still complex nose of chocolate, sage, black olive, pepper, coffee, leather, smoke, charred wood, anise, and funk. Dark fruits come forth on the palate. Very smooth but substantial tannins allayed with excellent acidity. Considerable length and very suave despite the wine?s dense concentration. Needs time to bloom.
