This company began in 1858 as The Phoenix Winemaking and DistillingCompany in Stepney, South Australia. The 2006 Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits rich,dark fruit characters with complex spice- typical of the 2006 Coonawarra vintage. Aromas ofblackberry, cassis, and cedar oak carry through to the balanced palate. Fine, grainy tanninsoffer understated support to the velvety texture and finish.
