Bin 407 赤霞珠 2014

随着优质赤霞珠的日益普及,Penfolds 在 1993 年发布了首创年份 1990 年的 Bin 407 。Bin 407 的灵感来自Bin 707,它不仅展现了赤霞珠的独特风味,而且结构清晰,极具层次感。Bin 407 是 Penfolds 酒庄跨产区、跨葡萄园选材的混酿成果,适当运用法国和美国橡木桶来熟化葡萄酒,成功地保留了以成熟果实为核心的结构。


Drinking well now, but will improve with time. Peak drinking now - 2028.

Taste Description

Bright crimson red.

Yes, definitely cabernet sauvignon, yet with an Asian demeanour.... How can this be?
Well, to begin – aromas not dissimilar to Thai/Vietnamese coriander, betel-leaf. And then - chive, lime, grapefruit dressing and Asian spices; green tea; Thai beef salad spices, nuttiness.
Redemptive cabernet markers - cassis and violet aromas … authenticating a South Australian birthplace!
Upon sitting – almost a powdery sprinkling of ‘soot/coal dust’. And, consistent to this theme – dusty oak!

Familial kirsch and tomato puree cabernet flavours underpinned by a pan-jus meatiness, cola.
Beneath – a vinous slurry… sharpening-stone replete with oil, graphite/ironstone?!
Sleek, elongated tannins (not grippy) align with judicious oak to convey flavours completely and effortlessly across palate.

Vintage Conditions

Autumn and early winter rainfall were above the long-term average. Rain stopped abruptly in early August with only light showers observed throughout spring. The dry and cool spring period affected canopy growth early in the season. Warm and dry conditions during flowering and fruit-set resulted in rapid grapevine growth and early flowering.

A high rainfall event occurred in Coonawarra in January, mostly falling outside of veraison. February brought weekend heat spikes, pushing mean maximum temperatures well above the average resulting in early ripening and harvest.


Launched with the 1990 vintage in 1993, and inspired by Bin 707, Bin 407 was developed in response to the increasing availability of high quality Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.
