Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

SKU 5219


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 first two flavour/ 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

Wine SpectatorBold and seductive, with accents of dark chocolate-covered espresso bean, fresh sage and licorice to the core of blackberry and plum flavors. The tannins show plenty of polish. Drink now through 2028. 2,464 cases imported.

Wine EnthusiastThis is almost confectionery in its fruit sweetness, layering raspberries over black currants in wave after wave. There's a hint of mint as well, ample weight and power on the palate and a long, dusty, tannic finish. Drink now-2030.

Wine AdvocateMainly sourced from Wrattonbully, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 has a deep garnet-purple color with aromas of crushed black currants and plums plus touches of pencil shavings, bay leaves, menthol and cedar. Vibrantly fruited, the medium to full-bodied palate has nice grainy tannins and a good core of pure fruit with an herbal lift on the finish.
