2018 Penfolds Quantum Bin 98 Wine of the World Cabernet Sauvignon

James Suckling 98 Points

Quantum Bin 98 is the continuation of a 22-year endeavor... It was in 1998 that the Penfolds team planted cuttings from the famed Kalimna and Magill Estate vineyards in California. A Wine of the World that encapsulates a bold blending alliance, Quantum reveals a wine that shows wisdom, crafted with conviction but also embedded in the "quality-first" philosophy that underpins the Penfolds flagships.

2018 Penfolds Bin 149 Wine of the World Cabernet Sauvignon

James Suckling 97 Points

Bin 149 Cabernet Sauvignon seeks out northern hemisphere excellence via meticulous vineyard and block selection, reinforced by flagship-worthy South Australian cabernet sauvignon. Cabernet Sauvignon is a globetrotting grape unlike any other...Showing it's adaptability and classic characters wherever it is grown is the inspiration for the inaugural Bin 149; a name derived from the percentage of South Australian Cabernet Sauvignon synergistically woven into the blend.

2018 Penfolds Bin 704 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Enthusiast 96 Points

Bin 704 seeks to redefine Napa Valley cabernet through a Penfolds lens, being mindful of varietal nuances, regional essence and silk-like textural definition. Deep understanding of terroir and mastery of technique come together in this unparalleled style of Cabernet Sauvignon. A mirror image of Bin 407, which showcases Napa Valley fruit through the lens of Penfolds winemaking traditions.

2018 Penfolds Bin 600 California Cabernet Shiraz

Wine Enthusiast 93 Points

Bin 600 is named for the Creston "600" Ranch (Camatta Hills) planted over 20 years ago in the Creston District of Paso Robles; this California Collection wine embodies a Penfolds core philosophy of multi-regional, multi- varietal blending - a style created and perfected by Penfolds in the 1960's.

Taste Description

2018 Penfolds Quantum Bin 98 Wine of the Worlds Cabernet Sauvignon

NOSE: Rich malt, bone marrow, and a complex spectrum of dark berries make up the aromatic core. These slowly fuse with notes of blackberry, blueberry, and boysenberry complemented by sugared pastry, cinnamon apple, and piquant punches of mild horseradish cream and Dijon mustard.
PALATE: A blue berried wash and glistening film cover the palate with a viscous, supple texture and succulent acidity. Flavors of graphite and hazelnut provide an exotic intrigue, with a whisper of sweetness that grows over time with air.

2018 Penfolds Bin 149 Wine of the Worlds Cabernet Sauvignon

NOSE: Aromas are focused, with sweet iced tea, savory caperberries, French polish, and heady barrel ferment characters of mocha and kirsch tapering to a precise point. Further notes include grated ginger, cola, green olive, caraway seeds, and a Bordelaise sauce richness.
PALATE: Classically Penfolds in character yet altogether different in structure, the palate features fine, close knit tannins and a menthol lift with flavors of cedar, sandalwood, and roasted meats. Bright acidity provides succulence and a sustained finish.

2018 Penfolds Bin 704 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

NOSE: Savory expressions lead the charge in the form of carpaccio style red meats, seared beef with a mild pepper crust, bay leaf, and wild thyme. Following is a Penfolds soul of Black Forest cake, glazed cherries, and dark chocolate.
PALATE: Dark Cabernet fruits transfer from the nose to the palate with a silk like flow. Animated and lithe yet still somewhat restrained, it has a humble personality but with the quiet conviction of Napa.

2018 Penfolds Bin 600 California Cabernet Shiraz

NOSE: Clove, sage, and turmeric spice notes divert to cold coffee grounds, raw coconut kernel, and jasmine tea. Fragrant salsa verde is present in flat leaf parsley, anchovy, and basil. Lastly, the oak provides a platform and springboard for blackberry and quince.
PALATE: Medium bodied with a glycerous texture and a backbone of sweet licorice brimming with potent aniseed. Radiating from this backbone is pepper rubbed pastrami, rare roast beef, cocoa dusting, semi dried dates, and freshly harvested persimmons with an open textural weave.
