Penfold's Cabernet Bin 407 Australia 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Farbe: Tiefrot. Nase: ein jugendlicher, natürlicher Wein, der eine wunderbares Feuerwerk an Aromen zeigt. Gaumen: Viele parfümierte Kamillen-, Veilchen- und Mokka-Aromen. Ein klassisch strukturierter Wein mit ausgezeichneter Balance.

  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

Dark fruit, well developed tannins that aren't too harsh. Smooth and sensational.

Penfold's dark, chewy Cab displays extraordinary ripe fruit with a hint of the grape's firm tannins.

Sehr eleganter, stilvoller und typischer Cabernet Sauvignon, mit einem feinen Bouquet von Vanille- und Eichen-Tönen. Kräftiger, frischer Körper, etwas Minzen- und Blätter-Aromen. Schöne Zeichnung, guter Abgang.

Intense youthful purple color! Tangy berries and minty nose. Very good fruit and prevalent oak. Advised to wait but it is excellent now. Full flavour layers of fruit mint oak like hitting a flavour tune fork and feeling it reverberate on your palate: zesty and lively and young. (VD) Jancis Robinson.

Rich in flavor and supple in texture a seamless stream of toasty blackberry bay leaf cherry and licorice flavors wrapped in spicy oak. Has tremendous depth but keeps it elegant. Finishes long and lithe. Best after 2010. -HS Wine Spectator.

Violet color. Cherry blackberry and sexy oak spices on the nose with a suave smoky tone adding complexity. Very sweet and sappy with fat but juicy flavors of cherry preserves ripe plum and baking spices. This has great flavor extract and richness but it s not thick or viscous. A wine of great structure depth and length finishing on a sweetly spicy note of new American oak. This clocks in at only 13.3% alcohol and proves that a wine does not need head-spinning alcohol or ultraripeness to acc
