This is a juicy red wine . Losts of fruit with some spice plus plenty of wood and structure from the cab with a smooth finish. Good value too. What a great bbq wine with red meats.

Lithe and appealing for its gentleness, focusing its raspberry, currant and dusky herb flavors into a lovely beam that shines through a refined finish. Drink now through 2009.

Koonunga Hill Shiraz / Cabernet 2008 (0,375 L) - Penfolds : Koonunga Hill Shiraz / Cabernet 2008 - Rotwein von Penfolds - 0,375 Liter HalbflascheDie gelungene Symphonie aus Cabernet Sauvignon und Shiraz erfreut bereits die Nase mit Schokolade und Eukalyptus. Im Glas funkelt dieser Rotwein in einem tiefdunklen Rubinrot mit violetten Reflexen. Der Duft wird von Aromen dunkler Beeren und Schokolade geprägt, zu denen sich dezente Töne von Tabak und Eukalyptus gesellen. Am Gaumen dominiert der Cabernet Sauvignon mit seinen fruchtigen Himbeer- und Brombeeraromen. Das Aromenspiel wird um pfeffrige Noten und Tabak erweitert. Der mittlere Körper wird von einer feinen, dezenten Säure und reifen, kräftigen Tanninen getragen und das Finale begeistert mit süßen reifen Beeren.Der Koonunga Hill Shiraz / Cabernet 2008 von Penfolds  ist ein perfekter Begleiter von gebratenem dunklen Fleisch, Rinderfilet mit gebratenen Steinpilzen oder Gerichten mit Rotweinsaucen und Portweinschalotten. Für einen maximalen Trinkgenuss sollte er mindestens eine Stunde vor dem Servieren geöffnet werden.Weingut: PenfoldsLand: AustralienRegion: Barossa ValleyRebsorte: Shiraz, Cabernet SauvignonInhalt: 0,375 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Fassreife: in Barriques gereiftEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CLagerfähigkeit: 5-7 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Australien > Barossa Valley

Launched in 1976, this blend of Shiraz and Cabernet represents a value-driven introduction to Penfold's stellar line of Australian reds. They achieve consistent high quality in this firm, fruity bottling, which also has great aging potential.

Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and blueberry aromas are complicated by notes of licorice and espresso. Deep, chewy dark berry flavors are framed by supple tannins and given a bitter edge by anise and cherry pit qualities. Just a bit ungiving right now.
