Clarendon Hills Syrah Clarendon Piggott Range Vineyard 2003

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Firm, explosive in flavor, with a big burst of tangy blackberry, plum and licorice flavor wrapped in a tight package, with spicy, dusky oak showing, all persisting impressively on a racy finish. Needs time to settle in. Best after 2008.

The virtually perfect 2003 Syrah Piggott Range is displaying far more character, depth, and potential out of bottle than it did from barrel. The most backward, tannic, and muscular of the 2003 Syrahs, it possesses an inky/blue/black/purple color, incredibly full body, monster tannins, huge concentration, and a striking minerality with all the blackberry, blueberry, and peppery characteristics one expects in a top-notch Syrah. It demands 5andndash;6 years of cellaring, and should keep for 20andndash;25 years. A brilliant Syrah!
