Penfolds 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Bin 9, South Australia
Here's something new from Penfolds, probably Australia's most famous and highly regarded winery. Bin 9 Cabernet Sauvignon is their latest and greatest. We all know their iconic and fabulous Bin 707. Well this Cab is a value wine that hints of that same style and character. Like for 707, grapes are sourced from multiple vineyard sites and carefully selected for quality. For this Bin 9 a significant portion came from the ancient soils of McLaren Vale. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, lots were vinified separately and aged 12 months in French and American oak (about 25% new). It shows inviting dark fruit aromas including blackcurrant and black cherry with hints of mint and spice. It's well structured and focused on the palate with roasted nut, black currant, plum, cherry, coca and cured meat flavors. Like it's big brother Bin 707, it's very expressive though still young and bodes well for future development.

    Comments about Penfolds 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Bin 9, South Australia:

    There is a reason Penfolds wines are so popular across the board...they make some tasty juice! This Cab is no different with loads of black cherry, plum, vanilla and hints of mint on the nose. It's a big wine, but maintains balance with a good amount of acidity and smooth tannins. Great value Cab under $20 for sure
