Wine SpectatorLithe and generous, with cherry and currant fruit that pops through the fine-grained tannins. Finishes with overtones of cedar and fresh, loamy earth. Holds together with a real sense of purity and focus. Best from 2008 through 2016. 500 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Syrah Bakers Gully, reveals rich, ripe, round, sweet cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors with notions of tar and licorice in the background. Made in a supple, forward, precocious style, it is best drunk over the next 5-6 years.

Wine EnthusiastClarendon Hills' "entry-level" Syrah comes from vines that are only 12 years old, but it is still a very good effort. The bouquet includes graham cracker, sour red plum and herbal notes, while the palate picks up some dusty, red-earth flavors. The finish is crisp. Minus the minerality, it's comparable to a good Crozes-Hermitage in a warm year.
