Professional Ratings: 94 Australian Wine Companion
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Other Info: Collectible Wines
Style: Smooth & Supple
Item no. 21085
Colour: Deep red with magenta hues.
Nose: Expressive varietal lift - predominantly blackcurrant with a hint of tomato leaf. Wild raspberry and blackberry nuances become evident as the wine sits in the glass. A subtle background of spicy, smoky oak.
Palate: Generous ripe berry fruits - like blackcurrant conserve - with a suggestion of praline. Pronounced, yet not aggressive, tannins. Finishes with a fruit sweetness and balanced oak/tannin firmness.
Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: This wine will gain complexity and evolve with careful cellaring. An ideal accompaniment to roast lamb.
Medium to full red-purple; a cascade of aromas running through briar, chocolate and blackcurrant, with relatively subtle oak leads on to a superb wine on the palate with similar flavours, and great persistence and length. Chewy and structured in the best Penfolds tradition, it will live for decades. Retasted on numerous occasions during 1997 with roughly similar notes. Cassis fruit to the fore.
