Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Bin 407 was developed in response to an increased availability
of high quality cabernet sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and
approachability, yet still with structure and depth of flavour. Textbook cabernet sauvignon, the varietally
expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending, with a core
of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of French and American oak.
NOSE Where to start? So immediately true to variety. Punchy, not shy.
Beneath: Subtle forest floor earthiness, laced with liquorice, fennel and anise with a sceric
of non-aggressive fresh spearmint.
Above: Sugar pastille wafts – somewhat reminiscent of the fruit bon bons of youth …
more prescriptively/realistically – blackcurrant jelly bean.
In between: Summer pudding fruit generosity – suggestive of a cherry clafoutis?
Or maybe a fleshy red cherry trifle, avec sponge cake? Yes please.
Absorbed: Stylish/coiffured oak … want to say classy, but might sound pretentious? Next time.
PALATE Bountiful red cabernet fruits complexed by cut tobacco (pouch) and darkened spices.
Seamless, with a tightness/tension between acidity and tannins.
These tannins are ripe and friendly – currently perceived as fruit, not oak tannins.
Oak – quite possibly partially contributing to the sweetness apparent on palate?
Flavour and length. Lingers.
