Penley Estate Steyning Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


A well presented wine at this point in time, stick it away for a few years to see it at its prime.


Much has changed at Penley Estate in recent times and I suspect things will only continue to get better with Kate Goodman now at the helm.

This grew with time in the glass. Much more on the savoury spectrum, lots of dried green herbs, a scrap of something leatherish plus earth load the gun early. Dark fruits follow led by expected blackberry, a cameo from mulberries before cassis kicks in. Dark chocolate leads a late fight back on closing in an interesting turn. There's some weight (it comes in at 15% no less) and depth here but I can't help to think that time will only ensure all elements mesh a little better.

Drink 2019 to 2029.
