Not sure about the aroma of melted tar! But, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be available in the UK so I'll just order a few cases of The Struie instead.

Actually I thought the tasting notes were describing our boys perfectly!!! :D :D

2010 RunRig

The RunRig has often drawn comparison with the beautifully fragrant & tautly
structured wines produced from the steep slopes of the Northern Rhône Valley’s
Appellation of Côte Rôtie.
2010 proved to be an impressive follow up to the stunning 2009 vintage for Torbreck,
with the polarity of the vintages flaunted by the 09 and 10 RunRig’s. Where 2009
displayed high tone aromatics and purity of fruit the 2010 wines showcase darker,
brooding characteristics and have great depth, power and structur e. The wines have
developed unhurriedly in barrel and have emerged still cloaking their true potential.
The 2010 RunRig has beguiling presence and flow, is tightly structured and will
probably outlive the 2009. We have returned to the small addition of Viognier for
this release and it enlivens and completes the wine.
The delightful aromatics are released as soon as the wine is de -corked, with layers of
raspberries, apricots and crème de cassis cloaking subtle hints of black olive and
cherry. A dark, rich and concentrated palate flows from black fruits into brooding
anise and dark chocolate and is bound by tight, grainy tannin. This wine possesses a
multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve.
Although extremely intense, the wines power is cloaked within its balance and
concentration, surging forth as an expansive sensation- the way only the greatest
wines can.
The 2010 RunRig will greatly reward those with patience.
