Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 169 2008

Penfolds Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 169 750ml 2008   
Sku: 1804907*

Bin 169 was created to reflect Penfolds contemporary winemaking approach emphasising both regionality and maturation of Cabernet Sauvignon in fine grained French oak. The Penfolds Bin 169 is a style that is immediately Penfolds, whilst simultaneously illustrative of its ongoing search for diversity and style separation. An honest reflection of the region and a testament of Penfolds’ longstanding commitment to the vineyards of Coonawarra.

Tasting notes
COLOUR Dark magenta, with a deeper/darker core. NOSE Australia? Regal, yet modern. Lifted high notes – an intriguing mix of root vegetables … rhubarb, turnip, radish, parsnip, white chocolate and clove. No mint detected. However, scents of blackberry conserve, fig paste, black olive, oregano, bayleaf, paprika do appear on the aromatic radar. A hint of oak, replete with mustard powder/Indian spice artefact. Fresh wafts of new, sweet polished leather. PALATE Lively, stylish, confidently and assertively medium-bodied, Coonawarra. Rhubarb compote carries over onto the palate, energised by blackcurrant and quince allies and red fruits (cranberry and persimmon).Tomato chutney/relish/pulp… giving way to savoury tapenade, Dutch red licorice. The feature here is texture … structurally woven, a mesh rather than a coating – tightened by oak, bound by powdery Coonawarra Cabernet tannins. Good grip, natural acidity. Deep and long.

Food pairing
Coorong mullet cooked over vines, Tasmanian black truffle and baby herbs
