- A nose of blackcurrant, eucalypt and toast lead to a beautifully balanced palate with ripe cassis and plum fruit, vanilla and toast from the oak and ripe, sweet tannins. The 407 is beautiful to drink now or can mature for well over 20 years.
Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, Bin 407 was developed in response to an increased availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 offers varietal definition and approachability, yet still with structure and depth of flavour.
Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon, the varietally expressive Bin 407 highlights the rewards of Penfolds multi-region, multi-vineyard blending, with a core of ripe fruit supported by sensitive use of French and American oak.
