Clarendon Hills Syrah Piggott Range 2004

Another wine that we acquired when our store went out of business. I'm beginning to think it wasn't such a bad thing after all ;-)
This luscious Australian Syrah was given a 96 point rating by Robert Parker, stating "A superstar effort, it reveals off-the-chart richness, complexity and intensity. Floral-scented, exhibiting a distinctive minerality along with wonderful blackberry and cassis fruit, and a hint of wood. The mid-palate and finish are both long, textured and intense. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for a minimum of 2 decades."
My take on it: "Dayum!!!" I think that says it all :-D
