100 Points Robert Parker
Simultaneously incredibly rich and incredibly fragrant, the 2010 RunRig seems capable of aging at least another 15 years. Scents of violets and red berries combine with darker fruit, ample dried spice and hints of savory meatiness. It's a complete wine and one of the ultimate expressions of Barossa Valley Shiraz. Drink 2018 - 2035.

96 Points James Halliday
Deep purple-crimson; alcohol analysis can confuse, for the alcohol evident here seems little different to that of Descendant (15%), and the contribution of the viognier to the shiraz no less evident; the full-bodied palate is immensely rich and yet supple, the black and red fruits flowing through the length of the palate and into the aftertaste; oak and tannins are seamlessly welded into the fruit. Drink to 2035.
