Product DescriptionJames Suckling Review
A very fine and polished red with cherry, berry, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavors. Some spice and meat with hints of tea leaf. Some ash, too. Medium body and extremely refined texture, showing real balance and elegance. The tannins spread across the palate in a beautiful way. 78% cabernet sauvignon and 22% shiraz. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
Named for our original California vineyard, the Creston "600" Ranch, Penfolds Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz is intrinsically linked to the American Dream we embarked on more than 20 years ago. Today, Bin 600 is made with grapes grown from the original heritage selection of vine cuttings we first planted back in 1998 - a taste of the esteemed Kalimna and Magill Estate vineyards, brought to America in a signature Penfolds blend.
- NOSE - Clove, sage, and turmeric spice notes divert to cold coffee grounds, raw coconut kernel, and jasmine tea. Fragrant salsa verde is present in flat leaf parsley, anchovy, and basil. Lastly, the oak provides a platform and springboard for blackberry and quince.
- PALATE - Medium-bodied with a glycerous texture and a backbone of sweet licorice brimming with potent aniseed. Radiating from this backbone is pepper-rubbed pastrami, rare roast beef, cocoa dusting, semi-dried dates, and freshly harvested persimmons with an open textural weave.
- GRAPE VARIETY - 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Shiraz
