Torbreck Wines, 2015 Torbreck Shiraz 'The Struie'

"Lots of soy, stone, iodine and oyster shell with blue and black fruits. Full to medium body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy and long finish. The quarter of Eden gives this complexity and length. Drink now."

Torbreck Wines, 2015 Torbreck Shiraz 'The Struie'

93
"(17 percent new French oak; 15.5 percent alcohol) Lurid violet. A powerfully scented, complex bouquet evokes boysenberry, cherry preserves, licorice, five-spice powder and smoky minerals. Stains the palate with sweet black and blue fruit, spicecake and violet flavors that show a surprisingly light touch for their heft. Supple, slow-building tannins gently frame the broad, smoky finish, which hangs on with strong, floral-dominated persistence."

Wine Spectator
Torbreck Wines, 2015 Torbreck Shiraz 'The Struie'

92
"Fresh-roasted coffee, chicory and cedar notes set the stage for robust flavors of plum and cherry, accented by clove, vanilla and cola details on the finish. The tannins are thick and velvety but never get in the way of the flavors. Shiraz. Drink now through 2029. 600 cases made."
