Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

($150) Saturated violet. Ridiculously sweet and expressive on the nose, with room-filling boysenberry and blueberry preserve aromas, notes of sexy oak spice and vanilla, candied violet and cappuccino. Thick and weighty but wonderfully pure in its expression of blackberry, blackcurrant and boysenberry fruit, with subtle tannins adding focus on the back. The finish simply won't quit, the dark fruit notes clinging to the palate like glue. Already irresistibly gorgeous but I'd forgo immediate gratification and bury this for at least five years.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

The 2004 Syrah Piggott Range (from 40-year-old vines) requires 3-4 years of cellaring. This is a powerful, intense Syrah meant for true connoisseurs who have cold cellars as well as enough patience to wait it out. A perfume of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, blackberries, roasted coffee, pepper, spice, bacon fat, and a subtle touch of eucalyptus is followed by a deep, rich, full-bodied wine that should age for 20-25 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Dense, rich and distinctive for its mint-scented cherry and roasted meat flavors that hang together tightly in the meaty texture and linger on the finish. Has impressive depth that is held in by firm tannins that need some time to soften. 500 cases imported.

Super tasty shiraz. More refined than your standard aussie fruit bomb - great blueberry and even strawberry notes, but not overpowering. Delightful finish, this should be drinking in its prime - enjoy now if you've got any!

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
