The Phoenix name recognizes the first winemaking company purchased by Douglas Austral Tolley in South Australia in 1888, the 'The Phoenix Winemaking and Distilling Company'. The 2007 Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant notes of ripe wild berries and integrated spice with smoky oak. The focused, young palate displays strong varietal character of ripe blackberry and cassis, while silky grape tannin and elegant cedar oak contribute to this wine's approachability at a young age. Impeccable balance, typical Cabernet structure and bright acidity will see this wine age gracefully for many years to come.
A fragrant bouquet of spicy red and dark fruits, then a medium-bodied palate with bright cassis-accented fruit; good tannins and length. Value.
Coonawarra is the place to look for this kind of clean, fragrant cabernet, its red- and black currant flavors lifted by scents of herbs. A generous red for a juicy steak.
