  • Product Description

    Inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and approachability, yet still with structure and depth of flavor. 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 the sensitive use of French and American oak.

    Deep and prominent color – solid red.
    Where to start? So immediately true to variety. Punchy, not shy. 
    Beneath: Subtle forest floor earthiness, laced with liquorice, fennel, and anise with a sceric of non-aggressive fresh spearmint. 
    Above: Sugar pastille wafts – somewhat reminiscent of the fruit bon bons of youth… more prescriptively/realistically – blackcurrant jelly bean. 
    In between: Summer pudding fruit generosity – suggestive of a cherry clafoutis? Or maybe a fleshy red cherry trifle, avec sponge cake? Yes please. 
    Absorbed: Stylish/coiffured oak … want to say classy, but might sound pretentious? Next time.

    On the palate, Bountiful red cabernet fruits complexed by cut tobacco (pouch) and darkened spices. Seamless, with a tightness/tension between acidity and tannins. These tannins are ripe and friendly – currently perceived as fruit, not oak tannins. Oak – quite possibly partially contributing to the sweetness apparent on the palate? Flavor and length. Lingers.

    From Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully and Padthaway, matured for 12 months in French (25% new) and American (9% new) oak. The transition from tasting shiraz to cabernet is - as it should be- immediate and striking, in no way softened by the use of some American oak along with the French. Cassis, olive (green and black), together with bramble and bay leaf, are as fragrant as they are potent in the mouth. Needs a year or two to settle down.

    Youthful cabernet style here, showing plenty of blackcurrants and a tarry edge with dried plums, some raisins, mint and sweetly fragrant oak spices. The palate is very smooth and juicy. The fully ripe tannins are super fluid and open-knit, delivering a silky and approachable style. Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Wrattonbully, Padthaway fruit sourcing. Drink now or hold.

    Bin 407 is an offcut of Penfolds’ signature Cabernet Sauvignon, Bin 707, and as such it tends to share a similar multi-regional expression - in this case Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa, Wrattonbully and Padthaway. It's cloaked in both French and American oak, where it spends 12 months, resulting in a youthfully primary, vibrant red in that distinctly ripe, opulent Aussie style. Sweet, blackcurranty Cabernet aromas are accompanied by just a hint of cooler climate leafiness, all the while showing plenty of cassis richness, nice firm tannins and a savoury quality on the finish. Try with a rack of rosemary and garlic lamb. Drinking Window 2020 - 2030

    Slightly herbal and leafy on the nose, the deep, currant-scented 2016 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon blends fruit from five different regions of South Australia. It's medium to full-bodied, with soft, measured tannins and true Cabernet identity. Aged in French and American oak, there are some cedar and mocha notes apparent on the nose and finish, but the cassis fruit carries the day.
