"Deep garnet-black with a hint of purple to the color, the 2010 RunRig taunts at first with a slightly closed nose before it engages with subtle kirsch, preserved plum, dried mulberry and Christmas cake notes intermingled with hints of violets, cinnamon stick, mocha and game. Full-bodied, rich and incredibly concentrated, the palate astonishes with incredible poise for such a big style as it perfectly balances the wine’s generous fruit flavors with firm, velvety tannins and seamlessly vibrant, lively acid. It finishes with incredible persistence. 100 points/Drink 2016-2028+" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

"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. 96 Points/Drink by 2025" - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion

"From six to eight different vineyards from around the Barossa, the youngest vineyard getting in here is about 90-years-old, the oldest pushing to 170-years-old, from the Powell ‘Old Block’. Spent two and a half years in up to 40% new French oak and there’s a touch of viognier in this blend, somewhere under 5%. Super-charged aromas, really pretty in a beefy, rich kind of way, showing red and black fruits, cinnamon, floral perfume. Wafty, draws you back in. To taste, gliding, slippery feel, dark fruits, structured and powerful but not knocking socks off. Impressive concentration and carry of flavour, effortless yet coursing across the palate. There’s tension and elegance here; an excellent iteration of this wine. 95+ Points/Drink 2013-2023" - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
