This is a decent, OK, not wow bottle of wine. Clearly it is way overrated by RP when he gave it 96! I would give it 91+. The color is not appealing.

"The 2005 Syrah Moritz Vineyard was sourced from only 30-year-old vines. It offers floral notes
Wine Advocate ReviewRated 95An amazing performance, even better than last years showing from tank, the 2004 Syrah Moritz is produced from one of Clarendon Hills youngest vineyard sites (planted in 1975). The wine was aged in 42% new French oak for 18 months prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Gorgeous aromas of flowers, blueberries, cassis, and meat jump from the glass of this cuvee. With huge body and a rich, intense style, Bratasiuk claims it is his hypothetical blend of a Cornas and Hermitage, although it possesses more fruit than most of those wines. It should drink well for a minimum of 15 years.
