2019 Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet


This 2019 version of this wine has not been reviewed yet. Suffice it to say the winery’s review might be hyped . . . something not really true, based on our own panel’s tasting. Here’s what Penfolds (maker of the $500/bottle Grange) had to say: “Crimson with a ruby red brightness at the rim. Undoubtedly Cabernet, there is no denying the DNA. Steely graphite, pomegranate liveliness and seared pepper crusted beef. Dried herbs aromatically circle around the varietal Cabernet fruit. White cherries and cranberry follow aromatic pomegranate, bringing an associated succulence that borders on austerity. Fine silky tannins, a steely core, graphite provides shape. A solid framework for the fruit and tannins hinge upon.” The wine is mostly shiraz and well worth an asking price as low as $7.99.
