Penley Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
From Kym Tolley's estate on Coonawarra’s narrow band of terra rossa soil, this is a cabernet with clean lines and earthy refinement. The fruit is ripe, in a black cherry and blueberry mode; the alcohol is not shy. But the wine feels finely tailored, a style Tolley picked up, perhaps, from his earlier career at Penfolds.
Deep garnet; a dark personality filled with mocha, cassis and a brambly complexity; the palate is dense and chewy, dark and a little bitter, with the structure sitting atop the fruit; time should see this resolved.

Tolley has over 25 years of winemaking experience, including being involved in the making of many vintages of the famous Penfolds Grange. The estate is located in the heart of Coonawarra, with the vines planted in the famed "terra rossa" soils – bright red top-soils overlaying soft free-draining limestone.
Critically acclaimed as one of Coonawarra's leading estates, and voted as one of the International Wineries of the Year 2001 by Wine & Spirits Magazine, while the Reserve Cabernet voted best wine of Coonawarra 2001, as judged by winemaking peers and critics.
The Penley Estate signature style comprises distinct, precise, terrior driven wines – not overly oaked or excessively alcoholic. They display ripe clean fruit with true regional character – the senior wines will age for many years.
