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.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
