Penley Estate “Phoenix” Cabernet Sauvignon, Coonawarra, Australia, 2019


Like a phoenix from the ashes, this Cabernet rises from the glass with a complex bouquet of plum, blackberry and anise with a dusting of dark chocolate. It’s a delicious contemporary wine, intense and long on the palate with savoury tannins coating the mouth.  It’s best drunk with food, with friends and with a roaring fire in the background.

Wine Enthusiast 94 pts:  This excellent wine offers aromas of blueberry, currant, terra cotta, iodine, savory spices and an umami-like seaweed nuance. There’s lovely depth of flavor, tannin structure and regional expression on the palate. Drink through 2040. Cellar Selection.

Wine Spectator 92 pts:  This has terrific concentration, with generous black licorice, Earl Grey, allspice and dark chocolate notes that mingle with cassis, spiced stewed plum and toasted herb details. Shows plenty of harmony on the long, expressive finish, with velvety tannins. Drink now through 2035.
