Penfolds Bin 9 Cabernet Sauvignon

A brand new Bin, intended to fill the gap as 407 and 707 ascend into the price stratosphere. It’s an elegant, bright and lively style of pretty rose bud aromas and morello cherry tang. Crunchy redcurrants and leaf define a tightly coiled palate, a little shy on length and depth for the price. A blend of McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Wrattonbully, Barossa, Padthaway, Barossa Valley and Coonawarra, matured for 12 months in French (12% new) and American oak (14% new) hogsheads. Available 6 March 2014.
