(2012 Vintage) These lifted aromatics are released as soon as the wine is opened with layers of raspberries, apricots and creme de cassis cloaking subtle hints of black olive and cherry. A dark, rich and silky palate with deep red cherry fruits, clove, lavender & licorice all interwoven with hints of sweet spice and cinnamon. The layers and diverse fruit characters continue to evolve in the glass with plum, hints of almond, earth, blackberry and pepper all becoming more apparent as the wine evolves in the glass. A complete assemblage with highly expressive fruit, fragrant aromatics, imposing length and impeccable balance. The 2012 RunRig will certainly reward those with patience.
Blend: 98.5% Shiraz; 1.5% Viognier
