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 that was synergistically woven into the inaugural 2018 release. 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.

Red - big, bold, full-bodied


A weighty palate that delivers on the aromatic inducement. Flavours of milk chocolate, tiramisu, cannoli and biscotti provide a ripe core, while sweet and sour mulberries hold court. There is a suggestion of macchiato espresso with a side nip of coffee liqueur. The savoury flavours lean towards seared beef, doused in black pepper and dropped onto a piping hot skillet. A lovely wine with a finely structured palate and a very long finish. Remarkably approachable for one so young and bold.

”Having mastered the multiregional blend, it only seems natural for Penfolds to try its hand at cross-country blends. Here it is: cabernet sauvignon from California's Napa Valley and our South Australia. Matured in French (80% new) and American (20% new) oak for 16 months. Bright crimson, the wine shows plush, cedar-dotted blackberry, black cherry and mulberry fruit with hints of baking spices, espresso, olive tapenade, crème de cassis, graphite, ferruginous earth, leather, licorice and vanillin oak. Full bodied and pure of fruit with ripe, gravelly tannin giving a sense of fineness to the wine's structure, finishing long and true. Drinking great already, but this will be an impressive wine with careful cellaring.”
