Plush cabernet

Penny’s Hill Edwards Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, McLaren Vale, AUD $25

Richness and concentration are the strengths of this cabernet, while the bouquet has a distinctive ginger-spice note. Oak makes a strong statement and the tannins are firm and give the palate plenty of structure. It will age well. (14.5 per cent alcohol; screw-cap)
