Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407text

Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 1998

South Australia, AustraliaThis is year number eight for the 407 that is blended in both French and American oak. Expect a varietally expressive red packed full of mint, cassis, black olive, black currant and coffee aromas and flavours. The slightly leathery, tannic finish will enable it to age for some years. At 14 percent alcohol, this is a mouth-filling cabernet and one of the biggest 407s to date. Tasted: 01 March 2001Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
