97 points "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. James Halliday -- 96pts What can only be described as a totally serious wine; extremely powerful, with multi-layered black fruits complexed by touches of earth and mineral; the tannins are perfectly balanced, the wine precisely where it should be. Wine Spectator -- 95pts A lavish mouthful of plum, blackberry, chocolate and subtle sweet spices, hinting at roasted fruit as the finish sails on and on against super refined tannins. Dramatic, but beautifully balanced. Best from 2009 through 2020. " Best 2015-2020
