PENFOLDS BIN 407 CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2017

$130.00

“Another major success” 96 – James Halliday

Introducing this garnet red coloured 2017 instalment of Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose it spells all things cabernet with an immediate ascent of violet, mulberry leaf, laced with star anise, cinnamon and orange zest.

The palate is more Tuscan than Bordeaux, but still very South Australian. It has a sour cherry grip with a subtle cherry pip oak influence. It is both mouth-watering and succulent, yet still linear and tempered by appetising angular tannins. There is also a hint of darker fruits and stuffed Spanish olive flavours to further define the vintage and style.

96 – James Halliday, The Wine Companion

“Great colour; blackcurrant, licorice, dark chocolate and spices run through the bouquet and palate alike, splitting and reforming in a dance of cassis and spices of all kinds. There is life and energy to spare here. Another major success.”

93 – Christina Pickard, Wine Mag

“This is a strong vintage of Bin 407, a multiregional South Australian Cab. It opens with aromas of chocolate, cola, plush plum and black cherry, backed by accents of mint and other crushed herbs. On the palate, fine, chalky tannins slink around silky fruit and savory herbs. Poised and harmonious, this has the potential to age until 2030, but is drinking well right now.”
