Penley Estate 2016 Argus Red (Coonawarra)

Cabernet is far and away Coonawarra's most famous and distinctive grape variety so its not surprising that this is the varietal that shines in this red blend, which also includes Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Tangy plum, cherry, black pepper, coffee grounds, vanilla and dried mint aromas are backed by toasty oak. Tight-grained, herbal tannins bind together with the plump fruit on the palate. This needs protein and a decanter or another few years of bottle age. Christina Pickard
