Producer tasting notes: "COLOUR Deep red, dark core NOSE Initially not overtly Cabernet Sauvignon…emitting mixed cues, by virtue half-way between that expected of Bin 407 and Bin 707? Scents of black olive, charcoal, meat jus/pan-scrapings, rosemary…all converge, arching across a darkened veil of fruit. Oak impacts – clove and cedar detectable. PALATE Solid, generous. Sweet middle-palate – a Cabernet structural doughnut? No, not here! Softened, integrated tannins. Bereft of harshness, astringence. Oak presence suggested on nose is not as prominent on palate. A generous flavour amalgam of chocolate, smoked meats, black fruits (predominantly blackberry), dates, fig" - Penfolds

Penfolds Bin 407 began life back in 1993 with the release of the 1990 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon. Created as a result of the availability of high quality Cabernet fruit, Bin 407 is inspired by its older brother, Bin 707. Not only offering varietal definition, but also approachability, structure and depth of flavour. The 2013 vintage highlights the Penfolds approach to multi-region, multi-vineyard blending to create a Cabernet that rewards the drinker in both early and later years.
