Easy drinking, much more Shiraz than Cab. Nose almost gone after 30 minutes of breathing. Good casual wine w/ pasta w/ red sauce, spicy pizza, even Indian. Good red table wine for $12. Buy at Costco.

Nice enough Cab-Shiraz blend. Somewhat lighter in body, smooth tannins, medium red fruit and not overly complex. Good mid week sipper for the price.

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.

Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz / Cabernet 2008 (0,375 L): Die 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.Dieser Wein 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: PenfoldsRegion: 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

Surprisingly sturdy in every way, the Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet firms up nicely on the palate and into the wine's finish.

Deep garnet-purple in color and opening with notes of pure plum and black cherry accented by hints of tar and licorice, the 2012 Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is a medium to full-bodied wine offering mouth-filling fruit, a medium level of velvety tannins and a nice freshness and vibrancy on the long finish. Drink it now to 2017+. Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy. Sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure and balanced oak. - Winery

(a 75/25 blend): Ruby-red. Smoke- and spice accented aromas of cassis, cherry and licorice, with a hint of black pepper in the background. Gently sweet dark berry flavors are brightened by a spicy nuance and pick up tanginess with air. Clings nicely on the finish, which features slightly rigid tannins and a subtle floral pastille quality. Firm in texture, with a crisp feel to the modest blackberry and tobacco flavors. Drink now. 180,000 cases imported. -HS Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy.
