91 points "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Phoenix was aged in 35% new oak. Purple-colored, it has an enticing bouquet of spice box, cassis, and black currant. Sweet, ripe, and layered, it has 1-2 years of aging potential but can be enjoyed now. Penley Estate has turned out four exceptional values in the 2006 vintage." (08/08) "

90 points " 90 points Wine Spectator: "Lithe and appealing for its transparency and pretty currant and berry flavors, shaded with hints of earth and herb, hinting at aromatic tobacco as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2016." (10/08) " Best 2009-2016

90 points "90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Spicy redcurrant and cherry aromas are deepened by smoky tobacco and loam. Dusty minerals add grip to fleshy red berry and cherry flavors, which become deeper and sweeter with air. This carries 15% alcohol but betrays no warmth. Finishes with lingering sweetness." "
