*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Color: Bright crimson red. Nose: Yes, definitely Cabernet Sauvignon, yet with an Asian demeanour.... How can this be? Well, to begin - aromas not dissimilar to Thai/ Vietnamese coriander, betel-leaf. And then - chive, lime, grapefruit dressing and Asian spices; green tea; Thai beef salad spices, nuttiness. Redemptive Cabernet markers - cassis and violet aromas ... authenticating a South Australian birthplace! Upon sitting - almost a powdery sprinkling of 'soot/coal dust'. And, consistent to this theme - dusty oak!
|Region||Australia, South Australia|
Wine SpectatorPlump and generous, with an exuberant, juicy mix of plum, cassis and wild blackberry flavors. Espresso, cedar and cumin details add a warm, spicy note in the middle, finishing with plenty of density and a dried floral hint. Drink now through 2030. 4,928 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateVery deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 is a little reticent at this stage, offering glimpses at black berry, black plum and pencil shavings notes with hints of menthol, earth and cloves. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed with black fruits and cedary flavors, it has a firm structure of grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long.
