Penfolds Bin 169 Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra 2021

Coonawarra, South Australia, AustraliaBin 169 marches to the tune of Coonawarra. Black fruit, aromatic notes of minty eucalyptus leads to a pure, clean, cool cabernet sauvignon with intense red fruit and a slash of tea leaf. Classic Coonawarra, all sewn up in French oak, it is a wine you can drink today thanks to its plentiful, dense, sweet tannins filling the palate but not drying it out. Still, it will unfold its real story over the next two decades. Another sleeper from Penfolds, whose current lineup under Peter Gago and the team is closing in on perfection at all levels.Tasted: 06 August 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
