Penfolds The Creative Genius Cab Sauv 2017
Ray Beckwith was instrumental in the development of Penfolds reds. His greatest discovery was the use of PH technology to prevent wine from spoiling. This wine bears all the hallmarks of Cabernet Sauvignon, with classic savoury notes supported by well-handled oak and supple tannins.
Distinctively Cabernet Sauvignon, the nose reveals soy, star anise and sweet plum sauce with a touch of oak influence. The complete palate is about dark wild berry compote, dark chocolate and sweet tobacco with well balanced tannins and opulent fruit.
