Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
*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!

Wine AdvocateThere's no Bin 707 from the 2017 vintage, so that fruit has been put into the 2017 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a lifted, perfumed style of Cabernet aged in both French and American hogsheads, with leafy, minty accents and Ribena-like cassis notes. Medium to full-bodied, it has a velvety texture and a soft, approachable finish, tinged with vanilla and dried spices. A blend of fruit from Padthaway, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and Wrattonbully.
All sizes are 750ml unless otherwise stated.
