Notes

‘The Highland clans used a “runrig” system to distribute land amongst their clansmen in a series of widely dispersed holdings. The emphasis not on any one farm, but rather the communal element of the whole.’ David Powell
"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, dense, packed, and unevolved. It will continue to open up over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2040. If it develops as I think it will, it will be a candidate for perfection down the road. 98+ Points/Drink 2009-2040" - Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate
