Winemaker Notes

The 2004 Liandra Syrah, highlights the quality of the fruit that is produced from 100 year old vines, planted on a soil of clay and sand. Inky, glass staining purple in color, this wine is polished and aristocratic. Expansive floral bouquet of boysenberry, candied plum and kirsch. A generous expression of bright dark berries, cinnamon, subtle bacon and eucalyptus, gliding into a long, open finish.

Critical Acclaim

ST 95
International Wine Cellar

Dark, glass-staining purple. Expansive, floral bouquet of boysenberry, candied plum, blueberry jam and kirsch, with sexy oak spices and vanilla accentuating the impression of sweetness. A gorgeous expression of bright dark berry flavors, complicated by deft notes of cinnamon, cigar box and star anise. This shows impressive power but also an overall sense of elegance and finesse, especially on the juicy, long finish. An amazing wine, with jaw-dropping concentration and clarity.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

This is sexy stuff that proprietor Roman Bratasiuk says is “more Côte-Rôtie” than his other Syrahs. Its perfumed nose offers up hints of violets and cracked pepper to go along with raspberry fruit, while it’s supple in the mouth—almost too easy—with pretty mixed berry flavors and a nib of bitter chocolate. Long and elegant on the finish. Drink now–2015.

The Wine Advocate

The 2004 Syrah Liandra was fashioned from 100-year-old vines grown in clay and sandy soils. Its inky/purple color is followed by a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, blackberries, tar, and hints of smoke and bay leaves. Full-bodied, opulent, and rich with low acidity as well as sweet tannin, it can be drunk young or cellared for 10-15+ years.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Polished, generous and aristocratic, with currant and boysenberry flavors strongly shaded with mint and eucalyptus overtones, gliding smoothly into the long, open-textured finish. Best from 2010 through 2020. 500 cases imported.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

The aromas are intriguing, as if you'd just opened a jar of exotic fruit jam from the outback. Then the palate is syrupy, a juicy mass of fascinating flavor. You have to like thick wines, but if you do, Liandra is worth seeking out.
