Penley Estate 2004 Chertsey Red (Coonawarra)

A top blend, Penley's 2004 Chertsey combines 60% Cab Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 12% Cab Franc to make a wine that's Bordeaux in conception but strongly Australian in actuality. The Merlot adds a rich mocha component, while the predominant notes are of cassis, mint and chocolate, framed by plenty of French oak. It's a bit warm on the finish, but balanced by crisp acidity—a satisfying steakhouse red to drink now–2015. Joe Czerwinski
