Tasting Notes

The wine spent 18 months in new French oak, and is fundamentally different to Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep purple-crimson, it has exceptional focus, intensity and length, cedary notes of French oak precisely woven through the vibrant blackcurrant fruit, reaching a crescendo on the finish. It follows in the footsteps of a one-off Coonawarra cabernet from the 1973 vintage, also given the Bin 169 tag. James Halliday
