Stuart McCloskey "As Robert Parker declared “Roman Bratasiuk is one of Planet Earth’s greatest winemakers”. Yes, the 03 Syrah is full-bodied however, Clarendon Hills is all about purity, the expression of terrior and vintage variation. With over a decade in the bottle the wine is now displaying wonderful meaty and smoky bacon fat characteristics along with ripe black fruits and a touch of pepper."
Robert Parker "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."
