    Winemaker's Notes:

    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:

    Vibrant deep crimson; a punchy and expressive cabernet bouquet with redcurrant, cassis, clove and olive on display; the palate is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and manages to create a long and even finish; designed for early consumption, but will stand the test of time in the medium term.

    GPA (6/5/2013)
    Four stars for a $20 wine. Stands up to most $30+ cabs. Get over the screw cap.

    Australia has some very nice Cabs and this is one of them. They are known fro their Shiraz wines but people should start trying some of the cabs especially with the prices you can get them for.

    Love that wine (11/17/2012)
    Ordered one wine, mistakenly received this. Glad I kept it. Have tried one bottle of six. Well worth the $$.

    High tannin and acid. Possibly keeping it a while might mellow it out, but it's a little harsh at the moment.

    Drinkable, but not worth the cost; there are many wines less expensive with more flavor and a smoother finish. Would not purchase again.

    Wow. It comes in a cheap seamed bottle with a screw cap, and that might be the highlights. This wine is tannic and thinner than Twiggy in the sixties. I would never buy this again
