Tyrrell's Wines Single Vineyard Stevens Hunter Shiraz 2009

Member Review by zufrieden:

These Hunter Valley wines (which I hope to sample in visiting friends in the region) are softer and less "in your face" than South Australian examples of this grape variety. This strikes me as a bit odd given the latitude difference, but here you go! In any event, this fine wine has good varietal correctness on the nose (those cherry cola notes again - even Doctor Pepper in a muted Georgia state of mind). This wine is mature and perfect with a lot of menthol on the palate (cough drops), but like the cherry versions preferred by my Grandfather when I rushed down for his needs to the druggist in anticipation of some change for chocolate. Nice wine, and will age nicely for several years. 89 points.
