Penley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra Reserve 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve was aged in 100% new oak, 80% French and 20% American. It has a splendid aromatic array of toast, spice box, pencil lead, licorice, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a full-bodied, opulent, layered Cabernet with well-integrated tannins, and a long, pure finish. It will continue to evolve with 3-4 years in the cellar and drink well through 2024. Wine Tasting Notes The color is bright with deep crimson and some purple tints. The aroma has a striking berry character with richness of fruit due to the ideal weather, average yields and late harvest. This is added together with strong smoky oak tones, which highlight the intense nature of the Penley style. Wine will show great depth and layers of flavors of cassis, smoke and chocolate.

The inky ruby purple-hued 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve exhibits notes of pure creme de cassis in its big, spicy nose. This big, backward, tannic Cabernet is more impressive than enjoyable at the moment. There appears to be sufficient fruit
