Winemaker's Notes

A perennial top seller and for good reason! This blood red Cabernet Sauvignon has often been described as a more approchable younger brother of Penfolds Bin 707. In 1998 Penfolds hit a home run with this wine - its a rich, ripe mouthful of creamy fruit, cassis, and clove spice with a long, silky finish.

Colour: Deep red with magenta hues.

Nose: Expressive varietal lift - predominantly blackcurrant with a hint of tomato leaf. Wild raspberry and blackberry nuances become evident as the wine sits in the glass. A subtle background of spicy, smoky oak.

Palate: Generous ripe berry fruits - like blackcurrant conserve - with a suggestion of praline. Pronounced, yet not aggressive, tannins. Finishes with a fruit sweetness and balanced oak/tannin firmness.

Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: This wine will gain complexity and evolve with careful cellaring. An ideal accompaniment to roast lamb.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet leads with blackberry and cassis, with lesser notes of spice and cedar. The wine then shifts more into blackberry and bitter chocolate flavours on the long palate, sustained by lingering tannins. More elegant than the Bin 389, but will also be very long lived."
94 Points

"Dense crimson robe. Bouquet of leather and black fruit with a spicy wood scent. Soft and supple on entry with gravelly mineral and tar notes. Tart, ripe oaky tannins that frame dried berry and briary accents."
92 Points

"Attractive blackberry aromas with bright tobacco and herb accents open this well-balanced wine. The palate shows strong cassis, earth and herb flavors, and an even mouthfeel. Finishes with dark cherry notes and full, fine tannins. This will age nicely and can use a little time. Quite flavorful and elegant."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
