Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Launched in 1993 with the 1990 vintage, Penfolds Bin 407 was developed by Penfolds Chief Winemaker, John Duval, in response to the increasing availability of high-quality cabernet sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Penfolds Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and attention to detail, at a more affordable price point.
A textbook Cabernet, the varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by French and American oak.

Medium-bodied; savoury black fruits, earth and spice; well-balanced oak; very good, but not great in the context of the vintage. Cork.
Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2005)
Winery Tasting Notes
Intense blackcurrant, dark chocolate aromas with touches of aniseed, herb leaf.
Generously proportioned, elegant palate with sweet, pure cassis, mocha characteristics and lovely dense, smooth, chocolaty ripe tannins. Finishes firm and minerally with plenty of flavour length. An exceptional vintage, with impressive weight and power.
