Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, and inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. The wine has achieved great success as a classic Penfolds wine. In 2005 it was rated ‘Distinguished’ by Langton’s, in recognition of its growing importance in the secondary market.

Medium-bodied. The complete package. Juicy redcurrant jelly, dark plum and fresh rhubarb on the palate.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 94:
Strong statement of cabernet is the first impression, with violets, blueberries, blackcurrants, fresh leaves and herbs. I like the clarity here. The palate has such intense and rich fruit, with plush, polished and ripe blueberry and cassis flavors. Holds an impressively measured and balanced stance. A blend of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 93:
This 2020 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and structural—the Cabernet character (the "Cabernosity" of the wine) sits behind a parapet of oak, and the tannins are finely knit and tightly clenched around the fruit. Unpicking the structure from the finish reveals smoked cassis, resinous char, star anise and sticky lamb fat. It's a big-shouldered, muscly wine. This is fierce and concentrated and will live an eon, but in my opinion, it lacks the finesse and poise that I want to see in Cabernet Sauvignon. The oak regimen—15 months in French (24% new) and American (12% new) hogsheads—and regional makeup has something to do with that: McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Padthaway and Wrattonbully. There are a lot of good Cabernet regions in there, but in combination, they lose their identities—although, that has long been the appeal with this wine. Choose your own adventure.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 92:
Fleshy and toothsome, this has an appealing density to the tannins, with notes of roasted meat and herbs, tobacco and cedar as well as plenty of concentration, which bodes well for time in the cellar. Drink now through 2037.
