    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Phoenix name recognizes the first winemaking company purchased by Douglas Tolley in South Australia in 1888, the 'The Phoenix Winemaking and Distilling Company.' The nose consists of violets, black currant leaf, ripe wild berry and integrated spice of the Cabernet grape. Mulberry and blackberry are the dominant fruit flavors enhanced by a tight palate with silky grape tannins and elegant complex cedar oak, so typical of Penley Style. A very generous mid palate with a hints of licorice and chocolate lingers on the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright crimson; by some distance, the best of the ’09 Penley varietals, with redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit supported by quality cedary oak and fine tannins, the medium-bodied palate long and complete.

    We tasted this with a big California Cab... this wine won. Something about how smooth and supple it is on the palate, combined with the ripe fruit and sweet herbal notes (eucalyptus anyone?) make it just plain delicious. Light enough to pair well with food (particularly anything with herbs on it - rosemary, thyme, etc), but balanced enough to hold up on its own, too. Great stuff.

    Enjoyed with friends at B-D Party. Really opened up with dark and red berries and a nice finish.

    the mulberry and blackberry dominate, not very much peppery flavor at all, pretty smooth overall, if you like a smooth fruit flavored cabernet this is a good pick

    This wine to me was overrated. JH seems to always overrate wine compared to other critics. I brought two bottles first bottle wasn't as good as 2nd bottle. It's all a matter to personal taste and your taste buds. I would of rated this wine a 88.
