Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Phoenix 2004

Member Review by darn1207:

2 bottles $22.99 from wine.com sale -- good shit, dropped in price to $19.99 on wine.com -- nice balance. blackcurrant. really good.winemaker's notes:The color is bright crimson with hints of amber due to its oak maturation and specific handling techniques. The aroma is ripe and rich with fruit dominant and strong varietal character typical of the Coonawarra vintage.Distinct blackberry/ blackcurrant (cassis) flavors, characteristic of a good Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon. The flavor is young and fruity with a hint of soft grape and oak tannin, so typical of the Penley style. A wine that is medium to full bodied but soft, balanced, and approachable, with distinct regional characteristics.

fter a wet winter, spring was cool to mild followed by a warm, drysummer. The 2005 Harvest saw plenty of sunshine and very littlerain. These conditions produced intense flavors, aromatics, andcolors. The 2005 Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon expresses distinctiveCoonawarra regionality and structure unique to the Penley Estateproperty. This elegant, full-bodied wine leads with ripe blackberry andcassis on the nose followed by aromas of spice, dark berries and subtleoak. The tantalizing dark berry flavors are heightened by the velvetyfinish. Drink now or cellar up to five years for additional complexity.
