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!
Shows appealing density and a savory thread, featuring rosemary, sage and loam details that mingle with firm currant and dried cherry flavors. Herbal shadings gain traction on the finish along with the dense tannins, adding an appealing fresh green note. Drink now through 2033. 13,057 cases imported.
Another beautiful effort in the lineup this year is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407, which is a multi-region cuvée brought up in both French and American oak hogsheads. Classic notes of blackcurrants and cassis interwoven with hints of dill, tobacco, and graphite all flow to a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that's fabulously balanced, with good acidity as well as ripe tannins. Give bottles another year or two and it should cruise for a decade or more.
There'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.
