Wine Advocate
Torbreck Wines, 2014 Torbreck 'Run Rig' Shiraz

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Run Rig opens with a bang, delivering intense fruits of the forest and blackberry preserve notes with hints of sandalwood, cardamom, dried Provence herbs, Indian spices and garrigue. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and oh, so satisfying, the beauty ticks all the great Barossa Shiraz boxes and then some. It is still relatively primary, so I’d recommend giving it another 2-3 years at least in bottle and drink it over the next 20+."
Torbreck Wines, 2014 Torbreck 'Run Rig' Shiraz

"(45 percent new French oak) Youthful purple. Powerful, mineral-accented blackberry, boysenberry and floral oil aromas are complemented by hints of cola, licorice and woodsmoke. Sweet and impressively concentrated, offering intense dark berry, cherry liqueur, spicecake and violet pastille flavors sharpened by a jolt of zesty minerality. Rich yet energetic as well, finishing with superb clarity and dusty tannins that build steadily and smoothly."
Wine Spectator
Torbreck Wines, 2014 Torbreck 'Run Rig' Shiraz

"Dark and dense, offering a toothsome mix of black licorice, loam, wild blackberry and black tea notes. The details start coming in on the finish, adding complexity and some momentum, with cigar box, Szechuan peppercorn and Turkish coffee elements lingering. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2030"
