International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 127

($325) Inky, bright-rimmed purple. Explosive, captivating aromas of every imaginable red and dark berry, kirsch, spicecake, pipe tobacco and floral essences. Thick and velvety in texture, with a stunning vibrancy to the boysenberry and blackberry liqueur flavors. Chewy and almost colloidal, but there's superb energy and vivacity here as well. A wild, almost overwhelming wine with great intensity and concentration, not to mention sweetness and purity. Does the finish here ever go away? I hope not. (Wine Brokers Unlimited, Modesto, CA)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 167

One of Australia's most prodigious Syrahs, Clarendon Hills' 2004 Syrah Astralis is fashioned from vines planted in 1920, and spends time in 100% new French oak from the cooper, Cadus. It boasts off the charts intensity as well as an opaque purple color, and notes of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, roasted coffee beans, pepper, smoke, and a hint of sweet toasty oak. This full-bodied, rich, intense, backward Syrah needs 2-3+ hours in the decanter if one is going to approach it at this point in its life.

Wine Spectator Author: Harvey Steiman

Deep, dense and brooding. A smoky, thick Shiraz that feels open and welcoming as the finish expands and persists. Cherry, chocolate and espresso notes mingle harmoniously and hint at loamy earth as the finish sails on and on. 500 cases imported.

Interesting wine. First glass after open for 2 hours very peppery, spicy, smoky. Second glass 4 hours later fruit came out and the wine totally changed. Overall very nice but very young. Won't open again for 5 years at least.
