Color: Radiant, deep, dark red.
Nose: There is no second guessing the variety here - pure
Cabernet fruit aromas abound. Notes of beetroot,
capsicum and blackcurrant leap from the glass,
and with air, sarsaparilla. Oak is barely
perceptible, yet sits confidently in the
Palate: Firm, complex and ripe, Cabernet fruits are
framed and complexed by notes of soy and freshly
tanned leather. The 2005 Bin 407 is a balanced
wine with a substantial mid-palate - impressively
so for a 100% Cabernet offering. Interwoven
French and American oak artefacts of vanillin,
cedar and lemon complete the offering.
Food pairings: Ideal with hearty meat dishes.
