Professional Ratings: 94 Australian Wine Companion
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Item no. 89692
Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Penfolds Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Penfolds Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and approachability, yet with structure and depth of flavor.
A textbook Cabernet, the varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds' multi-region, multivineyard blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by a sensitive use of French and American oak.
Color: Dense deep red
Nose: An aromatic, active and distinctly Cabernet Sauvignon nose leaps out of the glass. Wafts of Asian spices, dried lemongrass, star anise and blackcurrant arise with air, dusty oak notes oscillate in and out.
Palate: True to vintage, the palate shows natural, mouthwatering acidity, balanced by complimentary stylish oak and a lithe, sinewy texture. The mid-palate is substantial: mouthfilling, yet long and defined - mandatory for the 100% Cabernet Bin 407 style. Cabernet tannins and a giveaway Cabernet flavor profile show, without astringence or greenness.
