2010 Torbreck "The Laird" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1416451 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Very deep purple-black colored, Torbreck's 2010 The Laird offers an extraordinary perfume of Chinese five spice, sandalwood, rose petals, espresso and licorice over a core of prunes, dried mulberries and blackcurrant preserves plus a touch of cloves. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and packed with dried black fruits and exotic spice flavors, the generous fruit is structured with velvety tannins and just enough freshness. It finishes with commendable persistence. (LPB) 98+ Inner quote mark (6/2015)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Broad and expressive, with juicy plum, rhubarb and mineral flavors on a velvety frame, gliding easily over refined tannins into a long and compelling finish. Has tremendous presence, depth and promise. (HS) Inner quote mark (11/2015)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Malcolm Seppelt dry-farms his Gnadenfrei Vineyard in Marananga, producing small, concentrated Shiraz berries off vines planted in 1958; it’s five acres on clay-loam over red clay and limestone. Torbreck has been making wine from this vineyard since 2003, first under contract for Malcolm Seppelt, and, since 2005, purchasing grapes to produce this wine. It ages in new barrels with double-thick staves of Tronçais oak, creating a grand Shiraz with the complexity and concentration you might expect from old vines. Grape-skin tannins add to the dimpled impression of the fruit, while deeper, fresher notes of blackberries last long into the finish. Scents of tar and tobacco explode out of the power of the alcohol, but the wine doesn’t go boozy. Instead, it’s succulent and intense. Inner quote mark (2/2016)
