Buxom and inky, ripe with cassis and black cherry fruits steeped in smoke and charcoal. Black and staining, its wild, unknit tannins and ferocious alcohol create a cauldron of simmering fruit and meat and wood. Exceptionally unintegrated and young; give this two hours of air for now, and at least five years in the cellar for later. 15.5% abv | U.S. prices between $50 and $100 (sample)

Dried apricot, hint of cigar box, blue and black fruit. White spice. Really quite gorgeous.

From Double Magnum this was in top form, brought by Greg from Torbreck. Rich plummy pruney silky Barossa Valley Shiraz. The Factor sits with The Descendant in the Torbreck Shiraz Hierarchy below Run Rig and The Laird.

Rich, opaque red. Sweet leather and red berries. Great stuff.

Inky with licorice and tea notes. Loads of blue fruits. A bit sweet and heavily extracted.
