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.
