Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Padthaway. So a multi-regional blend. The wine has an aroma of French oak and spices. The palate is quite pleasant, with oak and some good length. One of the better picks from Penfolds' new releases that I've tried. 86 points.
Price: around $35
Would I buy it having tasted it? Probably not: it's a good wine, but there are better for the price
