  • NOSE: brett, eucalyptus, mint, dark cherries, medicinal herbs, basil. a dark fruited core wrapped with animal/funky elements. ends slightly floral and sweet.

    PALATE: brett, animal fur, flint, the 3 things come straight to my mind. the dense black fruits and acidity are well-balanced. a hintof chocolate, only a hint. well-integrated tannins. long, black tea-like finish. Very good to drink now.

  • Opened it in the morning and recorked it back to let it breath slowly. Slightly chilled it and drank very well in the dinner. Wonder nose with candy, caramel, cinnamon, and mature blackfruits. Palate is as impressive as the nose. Medium to full body with well balanced fruits, acidity and tannin. Long sweet finish. This baby runrig is at the peak now.

  • Great typical 'Torbreck' nose with Herbs, tar, horse saddle, tabacco, kaneelstok (Dutch candy stick with cinnamon taste) and rose leaves. Palate very well integrated tannins, sweet smooth and full with candies and herbs. 94p well deserved showing terroir and own style of Torbreck. Better than the 1999 Factor (Torbreck) we had alongside this bottle. Drink now, already on the (slow) decline.
