Enjoy a Glass of Penny Black

So I'm just going to cut to the chase.

Tonight I am drinking a favourite of mine. The Post House, Penny Black 2008. This is a steal at the LCBO for $19.95. This one is from Stellenbosch, South Africa. It is a real mish-mash of grapes. 5 in total, 4 red and a white????

Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvginon, Petit Verdot, and Chenin Blanc. I know your thinking what? But hear me out. This is a big and I mean big red, but is well balanced. It looks like pen ink in your glass, but my it is worth it. At 15% the alcohol matches the acidity that is provided by the Petite Verdot and the Chenin Blanc.

This is a great wine to sip in front of a roaring fire or with a good grilled steak.

All I can say? Enjoy.


  1. How every is it? Is it a sipping wine or better with a meal. SOunds interesting

  2. I've been sipping it all night and really enjoying it!

  3. I like your blog, Matt! Way to go! When I have to buy a bottle of wine, I'll know where to get a good recommendation.
