    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blackened crimson. Lifted roast meats, spiced licorice, bitter chocolate, black fruit, chocolate pudding, crushed rock, peat, smokey teabag and gunpowder unite within this weighted and somewhat recessed example. Sexy amalgamation of richness defined by great balance, positioned acidity and lengthy tannins. The incredible mid-palate weight provides an excellent length of intensity and considerable nuance of flavour pursues.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Velvety and terrifically focused, this delivers a laser beam of blueberry, boysenberry and plum, with hints of allspice and pepper that mingle effortlessly as they come shooting across a bed of very fine-grained tannins. Lingers enticingly for a long, long finish. Drink now through 2020.

    The 2006 Syrah Liandra Vineyard is also precocious but with a bit more complexity than the Baker's Gully.

    Glass-staining purple. Powerfully scented nose displays sexy red and dark berries along with smoky bacon, pungent herbs and incense. The smokiness carries onto the palate, which offers sweet black raspberry, cassis and candied violet flavors. Suave cola and vanilla notes arrive on the long, strikingly fresh finish. Very elegant wine, and delicious right now.

    I'm in love with this wine - especially the nose. It is so pretty! It has so much ripe berry fruit, then lots of perfumed violets that take over.. it's ripe and plush on the mouthfeel, but with a nice spicy element and balanced acid and tannin.

    Huge!!! Rich and Juicy. Packed with Plump ripe fruit. Ripe Black Cherry bursting at the seams. What I'd excpect and more from Clarendon Hills. Yet another gem to add to the repertoir.

    Wow…DELICIOUS! Very complex, silky smooth start to finish. A bit longer stay in the decanter but the wait and anticipation are paid huge dividends. Am laying this down for what I expect will be many years of pure pleasure.

    A really smooth, silky syrah. The tannins are smooth and not overwhelming. Berry fruits and spicy; peppery. Delicious!

    Fruit had taken a back-seat to the acid. Seemed a little out of balance. Lacking the volume of fruit expected. Overall a decent drink, but fell short of my expectations based on the $$ and the reputation of this wine.

    bought 2 bottles and, in each trial, had to pour half down the drain...seems the wine turned bad?
