International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 140

($105; 92% shiraz and 8% viognier) Inky violet. Powerfully scented, brooding aromas of boysenberry, cherry compote, licorice and smoky minerals; aeration brings up brighter black raspberry and blackberry qualities, which carry onto the palate. Broad and deeply concentrated, presenting a seductive array of sweet dark berry liqueur flavors and a late jolt of tangy minerals. Clings tenaciously to the palate and finishes with lingering blackberry and candied plum flavors. This really deserves some patience.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 181

The Shiraz for the 2006 The Descendant is sourced from a single vineyard and co-fermented with 8% Viognier. It was aged for 18 months in seasoned French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it emits an expressive, sexy perfume of violets, wood smoke, black pepper, espresso, blueberry, and chocolate. Full-bodied, on the palate, this voluptuous effort has great concentration with a noticeable uplift from the Viognier, tons of spicy black fruits, enough ripe tannin to evolve for a decade, and 60-second finish.

Chip Trust Rating: 100 Tasted On: 08/14/2009

I had this at a winemaker's dinner on 8/14/09. It had a slightly reserved bouquet of cherry, blackberry, bacon fat, vanilla and spice. The palate was extremely smooth, elegant and balanced with cherry, vanilla and spice flavors. I probably missed some of this wines elegance because it was tasted along side such huge wines as the Run Rig.
