96 Points Robert Parker

Primarily Shiraz with a tiny dollop of Viognier, the blockbuster 2003 Descendant spent 18 months in used French oak (barrels that were previously used for Torbreck’s flagship cuvee, Run Rig). A spectacular perfume of flowers, blackberries, cassis, licorice, and honeysuckle is followed by an unctuously textured, full-bodied red displaying a seamless integration of wood, tannin, acidity, and alcohol. With elegance, power, richness, and just about everything one could want in a full-throttle, beautifully balanced dry red wine, it will drink well for 12-15 years.

96 Points James Halliday

Deep colour; full-bodied; very complex, high-toned spicy aromas with the apricot influence of Viognier obvious, but not overdone; excellent texture and structure. High quality cork. Drink to 2023.
