Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Penfolds Bin
407 was developed in response to the increasing availability
of high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Inspired by
Penfolds Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and
approachability, yet with structure and depth of flavor.
A textbook Cabernet, the varietally expressive Bin 407
highlights the rewards of Penfolds' multi-region, multivineyard
blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported
by a sensitive use of French and American oak.
Color: Dense deep red
Nose: An aromatic, active and distinctly Cabernet
Sauvignon nose leaps out of the glass. Wafts of
Asian spices, dried lemongrass, star anise and
blackcurrant arise with air, dusty oak notes
oscillate in and out.
Palate: True to vintage, the palate shows natural,
mouthwatering acidity, balanced by
complimentary stylish oak and a lithe,
sinewy texture. The mid-palate is substantial:
mouthfilling, yet long and defined -
mandatory for the 100% Cabernet Bin 407
style. Cabernet tannins and a giveaway
Cabernet flavor profile show, without
astringence or greenness.
