“… there’s a lot to love here.” 

Introducing Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 2020.

The colour is a medium red core and a ruby red rim. On the nose, it has an authoritative varietal stamp with hints of crème de cassis, fresh blackberries andmulberries and a refreshing note of spearmint (sweet jelly leaves anyone?). From the grill, Harissa spiced lamb chops. The spice emporium is well represented: toasted cumin/coriander seeds, fresh bay leaf, and turmeric. The complexity derived of both French and American oak apparent. Toasted coconut (coconut rough), or chocolate truffles in toasted coconut. Cedar. Dusting cocoa/Dutch cocoa.

Introducing Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 2020.

The colour is a medium red core and a ruby red rim. On the nose, it has an authoritative varietal stamp with hints of crème de cassis, fresh blackberries andmulberries and a refreshing note of spearmint (sweet jelly leaves anyone?). From the grill, Harissa spiced lamb chops.

Cedar. Dusting cocoa/Dutch cocoa.

A generous fleshiness persists across the palate. Wild black cherries, cola, sarsaparilla. Sage leaves fried in nut-brown butter over grilled calves’ liver. Pistachio terrine. A fine graphite core and cherry succulence. Seamlessly woven tannins. The interplay between the oak, tannins and acid results in an even mouthfeel, a textural sheen. Cranberry acidity and succulence provide a lovely balance. Surprisingly approachable, given the varietal temperament. One to watch, will evolve beautifully over the next two or three decades.

96 – Tony Love, Wine Pilot.

“There’s a lot to love here, from the vibrant cabernet fruit profile to the succulent and expressive tannins that are juicy yet supportive, the palate even and beautifully balanced in its final hurrahs.”
