Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Penfolds is very good. It opens with a very attractive black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused black currant with notes of gentle plum, boysenberry and a hint of wintermint. The finish is dry and its moderate well-managed tannins sail away for a very long time. I would pair the impressive Cab with a New York strip steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Nose: Varietally correct, with all the right ‘ingredients’ – dried herbs, tobacco, mint, rosemary and thyme. Familial aromas of cold roasted lamb, dark olive and pulpy tomato attest to regional and varietal parentage. Palate: An olive savouriness sitting over a powdery coffee-ground base are the first two flavour/ textural descriptors that register. Then, blackcurrant, mulberry, boysenberry fruits complemented by a tomato puree sweetness. The friendly mix of trans-Atlantic oaks is handled very well (34% new). Finishes clean and long, courted throughout by compliant Cabernet tannins.
