2012 Torbreck Shiraz RunRig

94
"Bright purple. Smoke- and spice-accented black and blue fruits, vanilla, incense and potpourri on the deeply perfumed nose. Plush, seamless and broad, offering palate-staining blueberry, boysenberry and fruitcake flavors and a repeating vanilla quality. Decidedly rich but graceful as well, showing surprising litheness and cut thanks to juicy acidity. Displays superb energy and clarity on the strikingly persistent, fruit-driven finish, which is framed and firmed by dusty, slow-building tannins. With a bit more time in bottle to stretch out, this extremely young wine may yet match the superb 2010 in quality. -JR"
