Penfolds Koonunga Cab/Merlot 2006
Wine Tasting Notes Plum red. The nose shows fresh fruit aromas of red currant and varietal leafy notes. There are more complex aromas of apple and rhubarb pie integrated with smooth, vanillin oak and some spicy, charry overtones. A medium bodied wine with flavours of plum and earth across a succulent mid-palate that finishes with fresh minerally textured tannins. The finish is mouth filling with cedary, creamy oak.
One and a half glasses

Lithe, supple style has a nice core of currant and plum flavor, shaded with a touch of cedar. Drink now.
Bright and lively, with a supple texture and currant flavors that linger gently. Drink now.
