Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The compelling quality of Penfolds' expansive line of wines dispels notions that a wine must come from a single vineyard or even a single region to achieve greatness. Based in South Australia, Penfolds crafts some of Australia's finest and most sought-after wines. As one of the country's oldest wineries, Penfolds continues to live up to its superior reputation with this world-class Cabernet Sauvignon from the stellar 2016 vintage.
Made from a blend of Cabernet grapes hailing from some of South Australia's top winegrowing regions including Barossa, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra, Penfold's 2016 release of Bin 407 strikes all the right chords. Subtle touches of earth, fennel, and liquorice underlie dense black cherry, cassis, and rich oak spice. Matured in a combination of French and American oak, this lovely Cabernet is pure elegance and one which will reward the patient wine lover. Drink one now but be sure to cellar a bottle or two for the future.

Vintage 2016 - Medium deep crimson. Really attractive pure cassis, blackcurrant pastille aromas with roasted chestnut, herb aromas. Delicious cabernet wine with seductive cassis, dark plum fruit, fine grained yet slightly grippy tannins and beautiful roasted chestnut oak notes. Finishes inky, firm and long. A very expressive wine with impressive density, balance and vigour. Not as powerful nor as concentrated as Bin 707 but classical in dimension. This is benchmark Bin 407 with the promise of longevity. 97 points Drink 2020 – 2040.
Vintage 2016 - A sensational Bin 407 that masterfully articulates varietal precision with outstanding concentration and presence. This is a vintage that will turn heads from the moment it’s lobbed into the wine world, and will flatter incrementally as it uncoils over the coming decades. An exact core of bright, crunchy yet oh so dense blackcurrant and cassis fruit is intricately woven in a fine web of magnificently full and enduring tannins. In line, length and sheer jubilation, this is one of the greats in the lineage of 407. The best buy of the current release. Drink 2031-2041
