Food Pairings for Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
Forgot to review this while drinking it but I wasn't blown away. Less fruit than I typically expect from an Aussie Shiraz (probably because of the Cabernet in there). It was drinkable, and I'd buy it again in a pinch, but for $10 I think there are better wines out there.
Just OK. seemed to have a strong plummy taste. 71% shiraz.
External Reviews for Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
Bright and lively, with modest currant and dusky spice flavors. Drink now.
A gentle, nicely modulated style offers a welcome balance between ripe blueberry and black pepper flavors with a sweet leather note as the finish persists. Drink now through 2009.
The 2007 Koonunga Hill Shiraz (75%) - Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) was aged for eight months in seasoned oak. Purple-colored, it has an expansive perfume of blue and black fruits. On the palate it is supple-textured, ripe, and layered. This surprisingly elegant wine will evolve for several years and provide pleasure through 2017.
Fresh and lively, a juicy mouthful of blueberry, blackberry and cedar flavors that remain crisp through the finish. Drink now.
A solid red, with peppery, slightly gamy notes around a core of juicy blackberry fruit. Finishes with fine tannins. Drink now through 2004.
This is polished, delivering a bright mouthful of plum and berry flavors. Remains open and inviting through the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2012.
The 2008 Koonunga Hill Shiraz-Cabernet, which was aged in seasoned American oak hogsheads. It offers up a fragrant nose of cedar, spice box, black currant, and blueberry. Sweetly-fruited and easy going on the palate, this juicy, medium-bodied wine will provide enjoyment over the next 5-6 years.
Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet, a multi-district blend based on Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra fruit, has become a Penfolds classic with a reputation for over-delivery of quality at its pricepoint. Winemakers seek to maintain its style, weight and concentration each year, regardless of vintage conditions. Shiraz usually leads the wine, varying from 50% to 65+% of the blend. Koonunga Hill has a reputation for medium, occasionally long-term cellaring potential, but has always been crafted for immediate enjoyment upon release.
