PENFOLDS BIN 407 CABERNET SAUVIGNON 750ML

No reviews
Color: Deep and prominent - solid red. Nose: Where to start? So immediately true to variety. Punchy, not shy. Subtle forest floor earthiness, laced with liquorice, fennel and anise with a sceric of non-aggressive fresh spearmint. Sugar pastille wafts, somewhat reminiscent of the fruit bon bons of youth ... more prescriptively/realistically, blackcurrant jelly bean. Summer pudding fruit generosity, suggestive of a cherry clafoutis? Or maybe a fleshy red cherry trifle, avec sponge cake? Yes please. Stylish/coiffured oak ... want to say classy, but might sound pretentious? Next time. 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 palate? Flavour and length. Lingers. Peak Drinking: 2020 - 2032.
