88pointsStreicker 2014 Bridgeland Block Syrah (Margaret River)

While it is labeled Syrah, this has the richness and weight of a classic Aussie Shiraz, albeit one from the more moderate maritime climes of Margaret River. Bottle age has steered the fruit into raisiny territory—like a potpourri bowl with dried oranges and red and black berries, baking spices, chocolate, vanilla and plenty of barrel character. The palate, however, currently lacks cohesion. Tannins are big and astringent, and the oak shows a bitterness on the finish. Christina Pickard
