Torbreck-Descendant-Shiraz Viognier-2004-3L

The 2004 Descendant is by far the most impressive release of this wine, the colour making that immediately apparent; completely black/purple with healthy, vibrant magenta hues. A pure, wild, powerful nose of blackberry and tar is complimented by a gentle floral lift of lavender and violets. Fullbodied with great concentration, silky tannins and perfectly judged extract, this vigorous and suave young wine has a long, long future ahead of it.

98/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2004 Descendant, an old oak-aged blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Viognier from a 12-year old vineyard, offers up notes of blackberries, ink, sweet truffles, and acacia flowers. There are 1,000 cases of this full-bodied, intense, rich blockbuster.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #167



96/100
Wine Companion
Almost impenetrable purple-red colour; marries elegance bordering on restraint with intense blackberry fruit and viognier lift; controlled oak, tannins and alcohol.
, James Halliday Issue: Feb 2006



93/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Deep ruby. Primary aromas of berry skin, violet, freshly roasted coffee, high-fat chocolate and cinnamon. Very fresh in the mouth, with dense but tangy flavors of cassis, blueberry, mocha and fruitcake. Impressively concentrated and focused wine. With air, this deepened in flavor but gave up nothing in finesse. Finishes sweet and quite long, with an exotic chocolate note and bright acids.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2006



88/100
Wine Spectator
Ripe and spicy, offering a mouthful of mocha, licorice and dried blueberry flavors, finishing with firm tannins. Best after 2008. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
