Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Jay Miller - The 2005 Syrah Brookman Vineyard exhibits a complex array of toasty oak, violets, espresso, tar, blackberry, and blueberry. Like its siblings, it is opulent, sleek, and rich. It can be enjoyed over the next 20-25 years. Drink Date: 2007 - 2032.

Wine Spectator
Ripe, supple and beautifully balanced, with a pretty violet tinge to the rich aromas of blackberry and cherry. Supported by super refined tannins, this rockets over the palate, hinting at smoky spice and cream as the finish lingers effortlessly.

Backward and tannic, displaying loads of chocolate, pepper, black currant, and smoky meat characteristics is the 2005 Syrah Brookman.
 

Additional Information

Varietal :
Syrah
Also known as Shiraz in Australia and South Africa, Syrah makes intense, deep wines with plenty of spice, fruit and alcohol. It thrives in warm climates, and is widely grown in Australia, California, and the Rhone region of France, where it makes Cote Rotie and Hermitage, and forms the backbone of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Sub-Region :
McLaren Vale

One of the most richly varied and highly developed areas in Australia, McLaren Vale produces intensely-flavored, deep red wines and powerful white wines. Due to varying exposure to the cooling influence of the nearby ocean, there is substantial climatic variation in the region. Chapel Hill, Rock Bare and Mitolo are just a few of McLaren Vale’s fine wineries.

Region :
Australia

With the sixth largest wine industry in the world, Australia exports over 100,000,000 gallons a year. Climate conditions vary widely across Australia's many wine regions, creating ideal growing conditions for all of the Vitis vinifera varieties as well as "alternative" varietals like Tempranillo and Viognier, which are gaining popularity. Shiraz (Syrah) is the country's signature grape and the primary ingredient in Australia's most  famous wine Penfolds Grange, which critic Robert Parker compared to Bordeaux's famous Petrus.  Australian winemakers are know for their innovation, pioneering many viticultural techniques that they ritually share with their Northern Hemisphere-brethren during off-season travel.
