2007 Penfolds "Rawson's Retreat" Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $11)
Big discount on this cab, named after Christopher Rawson Penfold's original stone cottage, which still stands among the vines at Magill Estate, in Adelaide, South Australia. The wines are affordable, everyday, easy-drinking wine and is a classic Australian marriage of fruit power and structure. The Cabernet Sauvignon offers opulent dark berry flavous with a moderately firm structure and rich finish. " From one of Australia's legendary wineries, the Penfolds "Rawson's Retreat" is made in a style to offer good varietal distrinction for current consumption at a user-friendly price. At $5.99, this is one great deal that is perfect for week day drinking and any party or wedding you're planning this year. With only selected parcels receiving moderate oak influence, the wine is bright, fresh, and fruit forward. The nose is lifted with notes of red currant, cherry, earth, chocolate, light olive, and a hint of mint. On the palate there are soft tannins with very nice balance and a lingering finish. Have this bargain buy with Beef, Pasta, Lamb or on Pizza night. Grab a case to have on hand, you'll be glad you did." Jim Chanteloup K&L Australian Wine Buyer.
