Penley Estate Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
from Coonawarra, Australia
Number 97 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!
The color is bright crimson with hints of amber due to its oak maturation and specific handling techniques. The aroma is ripe and rich with fruit dominant and strong varietal character typical of the Coonawarra vintage.
Distinct blackberry/ blackcurrant (cassis) flavors, characteristic of a good Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon. The flavor is young and fruity with a hint of soft grape and oak tannin, so typical of the Penley style. A wine that is medium to full bodied but soft, balanced, and approachable, with distinct regional characteristics.
