2013 Penley Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon
Coonawarra, South Australia
Great nose full of currant, dark earth, and some sort of brown spice all reflected on the palate as well. Medium-bodied and a touch of nice, grainy tannins. Flavors really blossom with food and a little air.
$18.89 as part of a mixed case.
21+ bottles available.
"Lifted aromas of red berries with complex black currant leafiness which imparts freshness. Fruit flavors carry onto the palate with some subtle spice notes from French oak. A medium bodied wine, with firm and fine tannins that are well integrated creating a smooth and harmonious texture on a well balanced finish."
"Matured 15 months in French oak, 19% new. The oak is minimal but discernible. The small amount of wood tannin and fruit flavours will aid maturation if required. 14.5% alc."

$18.9994 JH Restrained and quite elegant, the palate reveals black fruit, black olive, and warm black earth. This rather amazingly well priced, delicious, medium-bodied Cabernet which will play nicely with your cooking every night of the week!

$21.9990 JH Oh my. This wine is so yummy. Full-bodied and rich without being heavy or obvious, dark cherry and chocolate with just a touch of oak and tannin, so well-balanced, so many layers, and such an amazing value especially as it is delicious now and clearly will age equally wonderfully.

$23.9994 JH Dark, rich, fruits, charry oak, and hints of herbs and licorice. Packs a surprisingly big punch and the flavors keep on going. Fabulous with our grilled burgers and eggplant, and imagine it would pair really well with anything grilled or roasted, with or without herbs, mushroom dishes, and stews.
