Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
External Reviews for Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon
This is one of Australia's top 10 wines. Ripe, intense-flavoured fruit fermented and matured in new American oak for 15 months. Opulent, flamboyant wine with definitive varietal characters: exaggerated blueberry/blackberry and cranberry fruit.
Im Gaumen entfaltet er Aromen von dunklen Steinfrüchten, Mocca und dunkler Schokolade, im Hintergrund begleiten Noten von dunklen Oliven und teeriger Eiche zu einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.
Tasting NotesWine Tasting NotesRadiant, deep, dark red. 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 background. 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.
