Wine: Silver Palm Cabernet Sauvignon - Contender54
This is a 2008 Cabernet from California that retails for about $20 a bottle in the New Orleans area. It was pretty good when I opened it yesterday and it only got better as it had time to breathe. I just got around to finishing the bottle tonight and I have to say that the wine has held up rea...

Penley Estate Cabernet - Contender54
I just opened a bottle of Penley Estate "Phoenix" 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Coonawarra region of Australia and it is a good wine. This is only the second bottle I've ever had from this producer (the '07 Shiraz being the first) and both have been great. I just haven't found any in New O...
