Drink this wine now. Decant as long as possible. It seemed nearly past its prime the first night but much better two days later. Medium fruit and body.

Big bold flavors as one would expect from a wine like this. Our bottle may have been slightly oxidized, but not enough to consider it a flawed bottle.

This is not necessarily my preferred style of Syrah, but there's no denying that this is very high quality juice; The nose has notes of pepper, vanilla and espresso, while the palate is all about juicy dark fruits interwoven by a firm mineral core and a long, expressive finish; There is a touch of heat at the end which detracts slightly overall

Another great Clarendon, with its usual fruit and balance. Blue/black fruit notes, with some gamey, meaty flavors and good structure. I like them all, but the Moritz might be my favorite of the single vineyard Clarendon Syrahs.

Didn't take notes and don't recall much beyond the fact that it was a nice Cab, with the usual good Clarendon Hills balance. I have 3 more bottles, so I'll try to take some better notes.

Deep purple with a great nose. Decanted 4 hours and it opened up beautiful. Licorice was the most pronounced of the flavors. The wine of the evening. While not cheap i have had much more expensive napa cabs that were no where near as good.

Deep ruby red color. Floral / herbal on the nose. Really thick, deep, intense and powerful wine. Tastes like black pepper. Drink with steak.

Fennel and mint on the nose, black fruit and coffee notes when tasted. A huge wine, as you must expect, but not an overwhelming fruit bomb.

Nose of dark fruits, cedar, some tobacco.
Right into the mouth there's something weird and off putting.
Is this sweet? Just too much fruit and chocolate, with the jam being a tad too ripe. Hard work...

Tasty with pepper and herbs. Long, but not too complex finish. Nice buy at the discounted price, but way overpriced at full cost.

Last bottle. Spices, charcoal, a bit rustic and finishes a bit harsh. Not as good as previous bottle but drinkable.

1st day: Bombastic blueberry fruit, so hot it stings the lips. Do not pop n' pour like I did, dear reader! 3rd day: now this is more like it.
Blueberry and pomegranite, heat gone, a little minerality making an appearance. Finish has smoothed out. Remains more cocktail than food wine.

What a wonderful surprise. right out of the bottle this bold, deep wine was smooth! The firm but subtle licorice flavor was the type of sweetness only a master chef could have designed. Drank it as a stand alone and spent all afternoon lounging in it. 20 or so minutes after uncorking it there was yet a higher gear of smoothness.

Paired this wine with lamb burgers. It has leather and blueberry notes that stand out. I would say it was at its peak now. Cork showed the beginnings of some bleeding.

I am a huge fan of Clarendon Hills, but this was my first disappointment. Wine was candy sweet - no tannins left. Past peak I am guessing, so my fault for jumping at an ebay offer. The 07 and 09 are so different (they have character, and some depth even if it is at the bottom of the great Clarendon lineup) and in my opinion much better wines at this point in time. Regret buying (several bottles of) it.
