    Winemaker's Notes:

    A warm spring lead to a perfect fruit set. Despite above average January temperatures and some ill-timed March rain in 2001, optimum ripeness was still achieved through a warm and mild dry April harvest period.

    The color is bright crimson with hints of amber due to its oak maturation and specific handling techniques. The aroma is ripe and rich with fruit dominant and strong varietal character typical of the 2001 Coonawarra vintage. Distinct blackberry/ blackcurrant (Cassis) flavors, characteristic of a good Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon. The flavor is young and fruity with a hint of soft grape and oak tannin, so typical of the Penley Style. A wine that is medium to full bodied but soft, balanced, and approachable, with distinct regional characteristics.
