Penfolds Koonunga Hills Cabernet Australia 2006
Deep brick red. The nose is varietal, unmistakably Cabernet; black fruit aromas of cherry and blackcurrant with the PENFOLDS maturation character apparent. The palate is medium weight and well balanced with fig and quince flavors combining with the liveliness of dark berried fruits. Well handled, integrated oak provides firm, yet well balanced and supple tannins. A lovely sweet creamy mid palate adds length and texture to the finish.
A pretty impressive bargain. Big smokey, oaky dry fruits with a good deal of complexity to keep things interesting. If you're a cab lover this bottle will do you no wrong.
I got it on sale for 5.99. An amazing bargain, nothing fancy but a good solid cab at these bargain prices.
slightly bitter, smokey, dry
Big and bold, but slightly too tannic for my taste.
Great value. We use it as our table wine.
Three and a half glasses
