Torbreck RunRig 2006

Torbreck's RunRig shiraz is not a shy wine.  The 2006 vintage, which is a blend of 97% shiraz and 3% viognier, had an aroma of raisins and good fruit.  The palate had great length, with notes of raisins and pepper, and simply lingered in the mouth for ages.  A high score since it is undeniably a good wine, but such is its richness and power, it was a bit overwhelming.  90 points.
