97 Points Robert Parker
The 2005 Syrah Piggott Range is quite backward currently. Glass-coating, it is deep crimson in color with mineral notes, violets, spice box, black pepper, espresso, smoked game, and blueberry aromatics. Deceivingly opulent, it has enough structure to merit 8-10 years of cellaring and should make old bones. Drink it through 2035.

96 Points James Halliday
Virtually impenetrable crimson-purple; this is the most savoury of the four top-end Clarendon Syrahs, with the mix of partial whole berry and whole bunch wild yeast fermentation departing from the normal whole berry approach; likewise, 18 months in 100% new French oak adds an exclamation mark to the lingering flavours of the finish and aftertaste, where perfectly weighted tannins come into their own; 560 dozen made. Drink to 2045.
