Yes, there’s been a break, but I’ve taken up drinking again… a 1998 Penfolds Bin 407 Cab from South Australia.
Penfolds Bin 407, its presence is palpable. Dark ink imbues your mouth with ripe, rich expressions of black olive, blackberry and black currant. Such shaded darkness makes for a wonderful secret or a wicked surprise. Are they irreconcilable or one in the same? A slap on the face…surprising; a slap on the ass, may be best kept a secret. Ten years in and this wine is used to being noticed, or bothered. Poised tannins lead to a startling clear pomegranate finish. It drops its voice and leans in with round, suppleness, gives chills on the surface with a visceral allure. Love is in the air, and we can ALL feel it!
