    September 9, 2021 - Via a Coravin. A hedonistic and delicious glass, pretty much in line with expectations. Ample blue fruit, rich, concentrated and fresh, with plenty of pepper and just a hint of mint, too. Well-integrated, sweet tannins, making for a rewarding and full mouthfeel.

    August 27, 2021 - Very tight on opening, definitely benefited from a couple of hours of decanting. Lots of sediment. As previously described, smooth on the palate and long finish. Slight spiciness on the end. Holding up well!

    April 10, 2021 - Deep ruby in the glass, almost black. Some garnet edges. Full-on big black fruit on the nose with sweet oak spice complementing it. Palate is slightly lighter compared to the 2006, but it's unmistakably Barossa. Rounded, sweet, with ripe tannins and moderate (almost low) acid. Long finish. Well-made iconic wine, but makes you take a nap after it.

    (Torbreck Run Rig Red) #1; VaynerPAZZZ (based on QPR); COLOR-dark; NOSE-a Brouhaha of fruit; a absolutely massive Skittle Rainbow; an explosion of red, dark & tropical fruits (coconut, mango, papaya, star fruit, red currant); almost has a Root Beer component; fruit forward/fruit bomb city; TASTE-this is out and out indulgence & explosion all over your palate; pure fruit; very thick & jammy; almost not wine-esque; jammy cherry reduction sauce; this wine is completely over-the-top; there's a orange marmalade on the finish; this is what New World fruit bombs are all about; massive fruit explosion done right; there's a creamy Coconut milk component; mangos; the orange & tangerine marmalade on the finish is wild and the most distinct & obvious flavor in this wine; great backbone structure; great tannins & polish; a very explosive, viscous & massive wine; will last 20+ years (or it may disappear - we don't know about these fruit bombs); JM-99; GV-94/95
