User Reviews for Penfolds Bin 620 Cabernet Shiraz 98awc/98js

Winemaker's Notes:

"An impressive red with loads of currants and fresh mint. Full-bodied, with muscular tannins and intense fruit. This is so toned and structured. Lasts for minutes on the palate. 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz. Aged in 57% French and 43% American. 100% new. Twelve months. Needs five years...98" JamesSuckling.com 8/12 "Excellent purple-crimson colour; the seamless bouquet is already showing elegance, complex cedar, cigar box aromas entwined with perfect ripe fruit characters. The palate has great drive, length and line; outstanding tannins give the wine great balance, texture and a certain authority; this is not a fruit bomb style. By far the best three-year-old Penfolds red wine I have tasted...98" Australian Wine Companion 12/11 "Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2008 Bin 620 Coonawarra Cabernet Shiraz (a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz) is a little restrained on the nose, presenting earthy, black truffle, moss covered bark and loam aromas over gentle notes of cassis, crushed blackberries, chocolate mint and pencil shavings, plus a fragrant whiff of cloves. Medium to full bodied, very ripe and rich in the mouth, the complex, layered fruit is densely packed and well supported by firm, finely grained tannins and very crisp acid. The finish is very long with a subtle hint of mint interspersed with warm berries, vanilla and baking spices...98+" WA 02/12
