Torbreck Run Rig 2004,  (WA99) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Torbreck Run Rig

Vintage: 2004
Region: Australia
Appellation: Barossa Valley

WA99
Rated 99 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The flagship 2004 Run Rig is 96.5% Shiraz and 3.5% Viognier with the Shiraz component aged for 30 months in a mixture of new and used French oak. Yields were a minuscule 14 hl/ha (about 1 ton per acre). Saturated opaque purple/black, it has a remarkably kinky, exotic perfume of fresh asphalt, pencil lead, smoke, pepper, game, blueberry and black raspberry. Full-bodied and voluptuous in the mouth, the wine is dense and packed, with amazing purity, sweet tannins, and a complex collection of sensory stimuli. The wine demands 10 years of cellaring and will provide hedonistic delights through 2035+. Torbreck, under the leadership of owner/winemaker David Powell, remains a Barossa Valley benchmark as well as one of the world`s greatest wine estates. The top cuvees are limited production and expensive but there are also some outstanding values in the portfolio. With regard to the current vintages for the Barossa red wines, David Powell states `? 2004 is more savory while 2005 has more purity and definition. 2004 is more classic, 2005 will take longer to come around.` Importer: Jon Elkins, The Australian Wine Connection, Carlsbad, CA; www.torbreck.com`
