Clarendon Hills Piggott Range Vineyard Syrah 2004
Wine AdvocateSituated in a natural ampitheatre with 360 degree aspects, this vineyard is dry grown and produces small crops of deeply concentrated Syrah with high tannin levels.
Wine SpectatorDense, rich and distinctive for its mint-scented cherry and roasted meat flavors that hang together tightly in the meaty texture and linger on the finish. Has impressive depth that is held in by firm tannins that need some time to soften. Best from 2010 through 2020. 500 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastBoasts a slightly lifted character to the aromas, but also shadings of Asian spice and espresso. This is supple on the palate and dark-fruited, with bold flavors of prune-plum and coffee and a long, firm finish that demands cellaring. Drink 2008-2020.
