Wine AdvocateThe flagship 2006 Run Rig is a blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Viognier. A saturated purple color, it sends up a complex bouquet of cigar box, Asian spices, incense, bacon, plum, and blueberry. On the palate it admirably combines power and elegance. Layers of succulent fruit are nicely complemented by the wine's generous framework. Another 4-6 years of cellaring should fill it out with style.

Wine EnthusiastFor all of this wine's warmth, it's not overly weighty, instead delivering raspberry jam flavors tinged with cracked pepper and slightly herbal or floral notes. No sharp edges, no drying tannins, just a mouthful of pleasure, ending with hints of espresso and dark chocolate. Drink now-2016.
