Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 2018

Product description

The Wine Guys Love It! Deep red in appearance. Aromas of black Forest cake, glazed cherries and dark chocolate aromas. Oak doesn’t distract on the nose, it is impossible to avert attention from a fruit-derived core. The palate displays chocolate coated (flavor) almonds (tannic-texture). Pomegranate-like acidity contributes to liveliness and dovetailed cedary/spicy oak adds to the intrigue. Sleek. Silken. Supple.

96 Points - Decanter     The complete Cabernet chorus sings its way out of the glass, fruit, leaf and flower, all in perfect harmony. Rich from the outset, it draws together a full body with grace and elegance, while fine tannins sustain the velvet plushness that rolls through. You’re left with complex aftertaste that provides exactly what the nose suggests. The circle is complete. An inspiring wine. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040.

94 Points - James Suckling     A very confident expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, this has a briary, red-toned core of fruit with redcurrant, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas, as well as a cedary-oak thread and some pomegranate notes. The palate has a very sleek, long and juicy feel with elegant tannins carrying fully ripe red-plum and dark-cherry flavours. A great 407. Will age well for 15-plus years. Drink or hold.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate     The 2018 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Robe. Classically built, it begins with scents of mint, cigar box and cassis, later adding nuances of olive and chocolate. It's medium to full-bodied, with a smooth, silky yet unyielding feel on the palate, and it ends in a wash of dusty tannins. While approachable now, cellaring 2-3 years should result in greater harmony, and this admirably concentrated wine appears capable of aging well for more than a decade.

92 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine    The 2018 Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon shows impressive density on the palate, and it finishes long and smoothly. This wine delivers excellent aromas and flavors of black fruit, earth, and dustiness. Pair it with slowly-braised meat dishes.
