An excellent bottle of Syrah! Needed some time in the decanter to open up fully, but once it did, WOW! Reminded me more of a big Aussie Shiraz, than Washington Syrah, but not over the top or a fruit bomb. Some definite oak, earth, and tobacco with the black plums and cherries. One of the best wines I've had this year!

Firm in texture, with a crisp feel to the tannins under the ripe, narrowly focused blackberry, plum and black olive flavors. The finish keeps singing, however, as the pretty flavors persist. Drink now through 2011.

This is a deep, dark Syrah loaded with aromatic dark chocolate and black cherries. Lush and concentrated with a perfect balance of richness and acidity that brings the wine to life.

The 2005 Sequel is made by John Duval, former winemaker of Penfolds Grange. The wine is 96% Syrah and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 16 months in mostly French oak. Aromas of cedar, smoke, game, bacon, and violets are alluring while leading to a round, layered, smooth-textured, full-bodied wine with several years of aging potential. This hedonistic effort will be at its best from 2012 to 2020.

Australian winemaker John Duval is the winemaker for Long Shadowsrsquo; signature Syrah. His experience shows in the Oz-like color (almost black), the spicy berry, plum, cherry and currant fruit, and the silky, polished tannins. Interestingly, Duval uses a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, rather than going with Viognier. The wine seems to be holding something back; itrsquo;s definitely got some years ahead.

Bright ruby-red. Wild berries and flowers on the nose, showing little of syrahrsquo;s animal side. Dense, pure and intensely flavored, with superb retention of primary fruits. Like most of these 2005s, this is tight and backward today but very fresh, and in need of patience. Finishes with notes of wild herbs and pepper and building tannins. A worthy follow-up to the superb 2004 version.
