Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon
A commanding and distinguished Bin 407 that will go down among the greats and longest lived. Exacting varietal precision of blackcurrants, redcurrants, tobacco and cedar coasts under a rising, lifted violet perfume, over a backdrop of finely structured dark chocolate oak. It’s assembled with molecular precision, bolting textbook varietal definition to grainy, firm, crafted tannins, upholding a brightness and energy that keep it lively in spite of great presence and concentration. It is held back from an even higher rating only by the furry graininess of its tannins, which aggravate its precision on the finish, holding it back from an even higher rating. Line and length are sensational, and it will go down among the long-lived 407s. This year, a blend of Wrattonbully, Padthaway, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Langhorne Creek.
