Intense, lifted aromatics are released as soon as the wine is opened; dark cherry crème de cassis and hints of nutmeg all come to the fore with an underlying opulent fruit profile of black olive, cassis and plum. A dark, rich and silky palate with deep red cherry fruits, clove, lavender & licorice all interwoven with hints of sweet spice and cinnamon. The layers and diverse fruit characters continue to evolve in the glass with anise, hints of almond, earth, blackberry and pepper all becoming more apparent as the wine evolves in the glass. A rich, opulent RunRig 2013 will certainly reward those with patience.

A blend of 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier made just prior to bottling, the 2016 RunRig is a complete masterpiece. It kicks off with elegant notes of pencil shavings accenting blueberries and blackberries on the nose, then shows incredible, palate-staining intensity of fruit in the mouth. It's full-bodied, plush and velvety without being unstructured and manages to be fruit-forward yet savory on the long-lasting finish, where it picks up hints of mocha and black olives. This should be drinkable with pleasure throughout its entire two-decade life (it may live longer from cold cellars or in larger formats), but if I were lucky enough to have a bottle or two, I'd try the first one about 10 years out. Scheduled for June 2019 release.

This is tremendous, opening up chocolaty and creamy, with wild raspberry and cherry flavors that expand to detailed notes of nutmeg, licorice and dried rose petal. An expressive red, lingering on a smooth, velvety body. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2030. 1,250 cases made.

Opaque in color, this wine is dense in blackberry, dark chocolate, cola and vanillin oak aromas. A hot, full-bodied palate is full of plush dark fruit and more oak. This is a powerful, ultra rich red that's seen a lot of sunshine. Drink 2019-2037.
