Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

The grapes for the 2008 vintage of Penfolds' Bin 407 were sourced from Coonawarra, Robe, Wrattonbully and
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.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: around $35
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Probably not: it's a good wine, but there are better for the price
