Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Penley opens with black currant and black licorice like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is ripe black currant with notes of black licorice, menthol and minerality. I also detected hints of old oak and blackberry. The finish is dry and its well managed mild tannins linger for quite a while and fade away nicely. This Cab would pair nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Cabernet has good depth with dark reds and a hint of purple. The aroma shows great depth of rise and rich blackberry fruit notes while the smokey oak is subtle. This is due to a great balance of berry fruits. There is a hint of perfume and aromatic notes which are complex and vibrant. The intensity of the fruits reflects the fruit character of 2010. The palate is soft and round with sweet and vibrant fruit flavours. The berry flavours are strong but not too ripe in nature with plenty of oak. The tannins fill the mouth and are very young, sweet and silky, a wonderful depth and balance to the wine. This wine shows good acid and silky tannins and is ideal to serve with a meal.
