Wine & Spirits(From 2003 Vintage) One of McLaren Valersquo;s most astonishing Syrahs is Clarendon Hillsrsquo; amazing 2004 Syrah Hickinbotham. Itrsquo;s inky/blue/purple hue is accompanied by aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, smoked meats, melted licorice, coffee beans, graphite, and bacon fat. Extremely full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with moderately high tannin, huge structure as well as massive concentration and intensity, but a sense of elegance, balance, and equilibrium, it should be cellared for 2ndash;3 years, and drunk over the following two decades.
Decanter(From 1998 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Complex nose of pleasant mint, red and black fruits. Well balanced on the palate with elegant tannins, richness and fullness of fruit.
