91 Points, James Suckling - A new wine sitting below the 407 in the hierarchy, this has a very distinctive Cabernet nose with cassis and a red currant edge, leafy and gently stony, some juicy tannin and taut tangy Cabernet flesh. Quite approachable with the right amount of sturdy Penfolds styling overlaid.
Good depth with a dark core and crimson edges. Grainy and savory tannin profile. Structured by classy French and American oak. On the nose, dark fruits including blackcurrant. Savoury green olive and roasted red peppers. Tomato leaf and oregano. Mixed spice, cedar and rosewood notes derived from oak. On the palate, tightly structured and focused.
Enjoy with roasted meats, cured meats and spicy chorizo. Decanting will bring out more expressive notes.
