Still tight and taut, the glorious 2006 RunRig looks capable of aging through at least 2030. Floral notes appear on the nose, along with ripe raspberries. This is surprisingly young, vibrant and fresh, with a long, silky finish.

Since I reported on Torbreck's recent releases back in March, what to do during my May visit? Perhaps a look back into the archives? OK, twist my arm... We tasted short verticals of the Les Amis (Grenache) and Run Rig (Shiraz). I've omitted including reviews of the 2013 and 2015 Les Amis (97 and 98 points, respectively) and the 2013 RunRig (98 points), because they're substantially similar to those published in Issues 225 and 232. Readers looking for the 2008 versions of these wines as part of the 10-years-later retrospective: they weren't bottled that year.
