Penley Estate Shiraz Blend Coonawarra Condor Shiraz Cabernet 2008

Member Review by kda1757:

With deep, rich and dark appearance with a ruby red color, this Shiraz/Cab blend from the Coonawarra region exhibits dark bing cherries and ripe blueberries in the nose, with forward spices and some pepper. There is also a hint of chocolate, saddle soap, and crushed rhubarb. It fills your mouth with a silky yet tongue coating viscosity that combines the hetat of the alcohol with dark berries, eucalyptus and spice. It is a good 20 sec finish that reveals both its tannic and acidic structural qualities. It's a good value.

Very nice, rich and complex red. Paired well with grilled steak, but also went well with an aged goat cheese. Will try to purchase again.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewRuby-red. Ripe cherry and plum aromas are liberally dosed with vanillin oak spice. Supple in texture, with juicy red and dark berry flavors, soft tannins and a late-arriving note of candied licorice. This gained weight with air, picking up luscious blackberry and cassis on the back. A refreshingly bitter cherry pit note adds interest to the finish of this suave midweight.Wine Tasting NotesThe Condor Shiraz Cabernet expresses distinctive Coonawarra regionality and structure unique to the Penley Estate property. This complex, full-bodied wine leads with ripe sweet berry on the nose followed by aromas of pepper spice, blackberry and subtle oak. Tantalizing flavors of dark berries, exotic spices, and chocolate are heightened by the velvety texture and finish.
