Penley Offers Up ‘Juicy New World Cab’ in WS Insider

Juicy New World Cabernet, refined French Pinot and ultravalue wines of all stripes fire up this week’s Wine Spectator Insider.

Penley Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010; Coonawarra, SA
92 points
Round and distinctive, with a dark cast, weaving licorice and prune flavors through bright plum and earthy spice notes, lingering against crackling tannins. Shows presence, persistence and depth. Best from 2015 through 2020. H.S.

Penley Estate Tolmer Cabernet Sauvignon 2010; Coonawarra, SA (Limited Release)
92 points
Focused, expressive and attractive, offering a beam of dark berry, light spice and green tea flavors. This finishes harmoniously, riding on a bed of fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2018. H.S.
