Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and approachability, yet with structure and depth of flavour.

Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon, the varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of French and American oak.

Multi-district blend, South Australia/Western Australia including Bordertown (SA), Padthaway (SA), Coonawarra (SA), Robe (SA), McLaren Vale (SA), Clare Valley (SA), Barossa Valley (SA), Wrattonbully (SA) and Margaret River (WA).

Cellaring:

Enjoy now or 5 years +

Nose:

Varietally correct, with all the right ‘ingredients’ – dried herbs, tobacco, mint, rosemary and thyme. Familial aromas of cold roasted lamb, dark olive and pulpy tomato attest to regional and varietal parentage. Oak? Just.

Palate:

An olive savouriness sitting over a powdery coffee-ground base are the fi rst two fl avour/textural descriptors that register… Then, blackcurrant, mulberry, boysenberry fruits complemented by a tomato puree sweetness. The friendly mix of trans-Atlantic oaks is handled very well (34% new). Finishes clean and long, courted throughout by compliant Cabernet tannins.
