Scotchmans Hill Cornelius Single Vineyard Syrah 2009

Scotchmans Hill's Cornelius syrah is not cheap at around $50 to $60, but it certainly showed well.  And I didn't even notice its somewhat hefty 15% alcohol by volume until I read the label.  In terms of both aroma and palate, the wine is savoury in impression, with flavours of undergrowth and plums, medium body and medium length, and nuances of pepper and spice.  This wine is ready to drink now and is very good in terms of its quality due to the intensity and balance of its fruit flavours, its length and the general complexity on offer.  The back label shown contains a wealth of detail on the wine.  Good to Very Good
