RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Editorial Reviews for Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Phoenix
intense nose of roasted berry fruit, leather, eucalyptus, dusty chalky soil, with background notes of roast meat, flowers, and Christmas spice, fine balance, touch hot but nice compliment of nutty oak and lightly jammy blackberry fruit, very well managed tannins, easy and alcohol is well contained on the palate, fruity red fruits but not terribly complex, minty finish with wild cherry, nice 87pts
This is a very solid cab. Very deep red with a touch of amber at the edges. Heavy vanilla on the nose followed by a touch of amaretto, caramel, and crème brulee. On the palate there is an abundance of red cherry followed by notes of butterscotch and almond. Overall this is a very nice cab for the money. My wife chose a good bottle.
External Reviews for Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Phoenix
The colour is bright crimson with hints of dark purple due to its oak maturation and specific handling techniques. The fragrant aroma consists of ripe and rich fruit with complex spice and strong varietal character typical of the 2006 Coonawarra vintage. The aromas are of blackberry and cassis. Distinct blackberry/ blackcurrant (Cassis) flavours, characteristic of a good Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon. The flavour is of young ripe fruits with silky grape tannin and elegant complex cedar oak ,so typical of the Penley Style. A wine that is closer to full bodied with more grape and oak tannins but that still maintains beautiful balance.
