Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz-Cabernet Case Pack 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red. The nose shows notes of sweet dark plum fruits, red berries and white fruit cake aromatics. Complex spice and pepper aromas arise almost instantly upon the initial pour. There is a mocha/ coffee and vanilla lift stemming from the balanced well integrated use of seasoned oak. The palate is bright and substantial. This wine has a medium bodied, solid structure with generous dark chocolate and berried flavors and obvious, grainy tannins. The fleshy, sweet core of fruit and flavor seemingly effortlessly facilitates impressive length.

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.

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.

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.
