Robert Parker (RP) : 97 Points (2019)
2019 followed the warm (but excellent) 2018 in the Barossa, and was marred by low yields and very concentrated fruit. 2020 was another step further down that low-yielding, dry track, completing a trio of concentrated, brooding vintages that are, as the years go by, harder and harder to get ahold of. So, the 2019 Descendant includes Viognier skins in the ferment, usually around 2%, and the fruit is sourced from vines planted from cuttings from the RunRig Vineyard. A baby Runrig, if you will. So, this is silky, slippery, tannic and intense, with layers of vibrant raspberry, jasmine tea, red licorice, jelly snakes and deli meat. As usual for the Torbreck reds, the texture of the wine is velvety, plush, intense and enveloping. This ages very well, we know it does, but if you must drink it early, decant it!Rating: 97+

James Suckling (JS) : 97 Points (2019)
Terrific intensity and depth with blackberry, blueberry, black ink, graphite and umami. Pencil shavings. Full and very fine with depth and richness. Co-fermented with 8% viogner. This is a wine that seduces you with its aromas and complexity. You just want to smell it. Give it three to four years to open. Try after 2025.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 94 Points (2019)
Fleshy tannins set the stage for rich, dense flavors, but this wine is outstanding for its aromatics as well. Presents palo santo, Asian five-spice, espresso crema, wild blackberry, lapsang souchong black tea and salted toffee, along with a whiff of fresh violet. Gorgeous in its persistence on the long, expressive finish. Shiraz and Viognier.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 94 Points (2019)
The mini-me of Torbreck's renowned Runrig, Descendant sees some Viognier skins. It's a perfumed and powerful wine, with aromas of raspberry tart, blueberry preserves, violet, cracked pepper and beetroot and a good lick of chocolaty, toasty oak. The rich yet sculpted palate is gripped by muscular tannins. It'll soften with time and should age quite gracefully, but for now it's still very young. Best After 2024

Decanter (DCT) : 95 Points (2018)
Heritage cuttings (and second-fill barriques) from Runrig lend pedigree to this single-vineyard co-fermented Shiraz and Viognier (8%) from Marananga. Younger vines (planted 1994) give flamboyant notes of soaring violets, luscious summer pudding fruit, cedar, anise, black pepper, stem ginger, apricot glaze and iron minerality. Silky milk chocolate texture, feathery tannins and cleansing acidity brings terrific finesse to the elegant finish. Bravo!

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 95 Points (2017)
Saturated ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, sandalwood, vanilla and exotic spices, along with floral and mineral accents that build in the glass. Sappy and densely packed, offering sweet blueberry, cassis, cola and fruitcake flavors that are supported by an undercurrent of juicy acidity. Finishes very long and spicy, with a repeating cassis note and steadily building tannins. (JR) (12/2021)

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 95 Points (2017)
Deep, dark red/purple color with a big, dried herb, earthy bouquet which has dimension and richness. The wine is big and bold, dense and layered with abundant soft, ripe tannins. This style has breadth and amplitude, with some herbal notes in amongst the red and dark fruits. A bold, ballsy wine with lots of stuffing. (HH) (2/2020)
