SKU: PENB149CAB19
Penfolds Bin 149 Cabernet Sauvignon seeks out Northern Hemisphere excellence via meticulous vineyard and block selection, reinforced by flagship-worthy South Australian cabernet sauvignon. The result is distinctive, and of distinction. Bin 149’s name is derived from the percentage of South Australian cabernet sauvignon synergistically woven into the blend. Napa Valley regional sourcing seeks to showcase strong tannic foundations, dark fruit intensity but with the added dimension of a unique “worldly” disposition. Matured in French and American oak, this release highlights Penfolds commitment to quality and winemaking approach.

Palate

For a nose that is so spicy, the plush generous fruit driven palate is entirely surprising. Liquorice, poached quince, fresh black figs, summer berry pudding with icing sugar dusting. The palate is focused, tapering to a fine point, defined. Fine and grainy tannins hold the layers of fruit together, offering papery texture/complexity. A succulent red fruit finish leaves a steely edge. Approachable, certainly. However, a patient spell in the cellar will deliver ample reward.

”Matured 17 months in 80/20% French and American oak. This is a civilised Napa Valley cabernet, the tannin structure particularly well handled. Indeed, served blind, Napa wouldn't have even occurred to me. The question is whether this is a good thing or not. Still, attractive drinking for a long time, thanks to its balance.”
– James Halliday
