PENLEY ESTATE PHOENIX - Cabernet Sauvignon - Coonawarra, Australia

PENLEY ESTATE PHOENIX - Cabernet Sauvignon - Coonawarra, Australia

"The 100% varietal 2017 Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon is medium to full-bodied, fresh and juicy, with cassis and cherry framed by light brushes of pencilly oak (10% new). Silky, fine and mouthwatering on the long finish, it's a terrific example of the region, at a reasonable price." Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate - February 2019
