<10 tasting notes
Every time, I really try and like this wine but every time, it leaves me a little flat. And given the price it pulls these days, it should surely do better? Leafy notes, dry herbs, fruit notes from the darker fruit end of the spectrum, some leather, a little of the Cabernet austerity. Lacking some length. Fair at best, for me. A wine that rarely inspires and this vintage is no exception.
Deep colour. Beautifully balanced and characterful, cabernet sauvignon with fragrant blackcurrant leaf, praline, mocha aromas with green pepper/ capsicum notes. Dense and chocolaty with beautiful cassis, inky flavours, looseknit graphite tannins and underlying mocha, roasted chestnut notes. Finishes chocolaty firm, long and sweet with persistent cassis, plum notes. A really strong vintage with a lovely balance between cool and warm expressions of cabernet. Possibly the best Bin 407 ever with intense varietal expression, supple/sinuous textures, superb vinosity/ length and South Australian voice. Can see this lasting for another 20 years plus. A compelling counterpoint to its big brother Bin 707. Rating: 97 Points; Andrew Caillard MW
