Wine Advocate 97 points - Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Descendent has 8% co-fermented Viognier in the blend which lends lovely floral, peach blossom and violet aromas to complement an intense blueberry preserves, dark chocolate and star anise aromatic core. Very full and rich, it has a lovely acid vibrancy alongside medium to firm, very fine tannins and a long finish. Drink it from 2015 to 2025+.  (Feb 2013)

Wine Spectator 93 points - Dark and spicy, not a heavyweight but mouthfilling, offering currant and plum at the core, with hints of apricot and creme fraiche around the edges, finishing with fine tannins and intensity. Shiraz and Viognier. Drink now through 2019.H.S. (Jun 12 2013)

The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier which, as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig.

The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier.

From the cuttings taken from old vines used to plant the vineyard, and the viognier skins the shiraz was crushed onto, to the barrels it was matured in, this wine is directly descended from RunRig.
