Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 RunRig has a tantalizingly exotic nose of cloves, fenugreek, star anise and cassia with a core of mulberries, baked blackberries and blueberry preserves plus hints of potpourri and dusty earth. The full-bodied palate is multilayered with tons of spices and berry preserves notes, supported by firm yet velvety tannins and finishing with incredible length and depth. This is a very impressive RunRig.

All the hurly burly of immense fruit flavour and yet there are pretty elements to this wine. RunRig shiraz, in a nutshell. Inky depths of asphalt, licorice, and saturated plum are met by volleys of five-spice, cloves, toast and chocolate. Tannin rumbles from the mid-palate onwards. The flavours are super-ripe but alcohol doesn't overly intrude on the palate. It's long and intense. Drink to 2030.
