    Winemaker's Notes:

    Black, deep midnight purple. Liqueur coffee edge with ‘Black Kat' licorice, tobacco leaf, lifted spicey leather, sweet earthiness and Kalamata skin. Superb clarity and brightness of traditional elements expected in a classic Australian Syrah. Black fruit and savory components mingle on a weighted, meaty structure. Expressive, bright characters are counter-weighted by restraint exhibited in this elegantly positioned and lineated example.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A medium-bodied wine, with fine, fresh, almost slippery/juicy red fruits the main game in the mouth, but with darker notes in the background; fine tannins and a super-long finish.

    Big, supple and remarkably graceful for its size, with hints of cream, cedar and clove around a core of blackberry and pomegranate flavors, all coming together on a seamless finish. Has impressive length. Drink now through 2020.

    The 2006 Syrah Baker's Gully is very perfumed with lots of up-front fruit. It can be enjoyed in its youth.

    Inky ruby. Youthfully brooding dark berries and cherry-cola on the nose. Suave oak spices and licorice develop with air and carry onto the palate, joining sweet, vaguely bitter cassis and plum flavors. Bitter chocolate and cracked pepper notes linger on the sappy, clinging finish. I went back to this a few times and a strong floral quality came up that reminded me of the northern Rhone

    Consumed March 2013. Pomegranate, blackberries, lingering spices, and a licorice note with thick tannins that coat the tongue. Lots of muscle. Felt young in comparison to the 2006 Clarendon Hills Liandra and wouldn't mind some mellowing out of the tannins with additional cellaring. Excellent wine, especially at this price. A good example of the variety and depth that top tier Syrah/Shiraz has to offer.
