Penfolds Rawson's Retreat Cabernet Australia 2008
Vibrant crimson red with a dark magenta core. Lifted and aromatic, this wine shows typical cabernet characters with mint, black olives and berries predominating. The wine is completed with subtle mocha oak. This opulent wine is fresh and vibrant. The soft tannins are surrounded by berry like fruits, with some chocolate and vanillin like flavors. This wine highlights the ideal growing conditions that were seen for cabernet.
A dark purple wine with aromas of black cherry, some herbaceousness I can't quite pin down, and light wood resin. This is one to decant. Initial flavour is of blackcurrant with hints of dark chocolate with medium acidity and tanins. BUT, after an hour in the decanter the flavour really opens up with rich berry fruit flavours that fills you mouth and a slight sweetness. This is a great value cabernet sauvignon. Usually available in Phnom Penh at Pencil supermarkets.
acrid and mild!!!
