PENLEY ESTATE PHOENIX CABERNET .750

Cabernet Sauvignon

750 ML

$24.99

Product Description

The colour is bright crimson with hints of dark purple due to its oak maturation and specific handling techniques. The fragrant aroma consists of violets, black currant leaf, ripe wild berry and integrated spice of the Cabernet grape. Complex and well integrated oak characters are evident on the bouquet. Mulberry and blackberry are dominant fruit flavours enhanced by a young tight palate with silky grape tannin and elegant complex cedar oak, so typical of the Penley Style. A very generous mid palate with a hint of liquorice and chocolate that lingers on the finish. A wine that is closer to full bodied with more grape and oak tannins but still maintains beautiful balance.
