Torbreck Run Rig 2005, 1.5L (WA98+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Torbreck Run Rig

1.5L

Vintage: 2005
Region: Australia
Appellation: Barossa Valley
Condition: OWC

WA98+
Rated 98+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Torbreck`s flagship is the 2005 Run Rig, a 97% Shiraz cuvee sourced from 120- to 160-year-old vines with 3% finished Viognier added before bottling. It spent 30 months in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple/black in color, it has a kinky, exotic bouquet of fresh road tar, smoke, lavender, black pepper, game, blueberry, and black raspberry. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, the wine is dense, packed, and unevolved. It will continue to open up over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2040 in the style of a Chapoutier Hermitage. If it develops as I think it will, it will be a candidate for perfection down the road.`Torbreck, under the leadership of owner/winemaker David Powell, remains a Barossa Valley benchmark as well as one of the world`s leading wine estates. The only cloud on the horizon concerns the winery`s ramped up production during a period of economic hard times.`--Tasting Note by Jay Miller--
