Penfolds - Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz - California
Overview: The success of Penfolds has been driven by the generations of visionaries and innovators. From the beginning in 1844 to today, the merging of science, art and innovation has driven Penfolds to become one of Australia's most famed and respected winemakers. From a soil that had never grown grapes and winemakers that had never made wine, came the very first bottles of Penfolds. We are borne from pioneers who had curiosity and just 'had a go'. In 1844 Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold arrived in the new world onboard the Taglioni with a vine cutting and a bold vision. The family purchased 500 acres of ‘the choicest land’ in early colonial South Australia and set about inventing tonics, brandies, and fortified wines made from grapes and Australian sunshine. From unknown soils in a faraway land, a world class winery grew.
Tasting Notes: Medium-bodied: as intended. Sweet licorice, brimming with potent aniseed forms the flavor backbone and contributes to the glycerous texture. Radiating from this backbone is pepper-rubbed pastrami, rare roast beef, cocoa dusting, semi-dried dates and freshly harvested persimmons.
Pairing: Beef, venison
Points: 93, Wine Enthusiast
Format/ABV: 750 ml/14.5%
