200810130009Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet 2006, South Australia
Looking for something to entertain friends who want to start tasting red wine. Found this:
Deep ruby with a purple rim. Apparent legs. Quite pronounced nose of red and black fruits with a whiff of alcohol. Dry with surprisingly refreshing acidity. Sweet cherry, blueberry and hint of spicy oak on the palate with adequate level of ripe smooth tannin. Medium+ body and a decent finish although the alcohol is quite noticeable. I'd chill it a bit.
Not bad for a wine which gathered more Parker Points than its price in HKD! ($89 @ Taste/Gourmet/PnS)
