Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Phoenix 2007

Member Review by aronowm2:

tea leaf green and a bit young. bordeaux/chinon like in it's vegetali. I am now making up words because I have already used up all of my negative ones in past reviews and I'm trying to be original. smells better than it tastes although the steak I ate it with was terrific, i could barely taste this. may do well from aging but i will never know.

rich and deep with a bit of spice and a distinct cherry essence.

Juicy blackberry, cherry, tobacco and tar flavors wrap tightly around the focused core of this firm red, lingering on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2014.

Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of crushed blackcurrant, rose, pepper and herbs. Lush and sappy yet delicate, with red and black fruit and spice flavors energized by tangy minerality. Nothing thick or heavy about this wine. Finishes with enticing lift and very good persistence. This carries its 15% alcohol gracefully.
