Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon


Matured for 13 months in new French oak hogsheads, the Penfolds Bin 169 Cabernet Sauvignon was created to reflect a Penfolds contemporary winemaking approach, emphasising both regionality and maturation of Cabernet Sauvignon in fine-grained French oak. A style that is immediately Penfolds, whilst simultaneously illustrative of its ongoing search for diversity and style separation. An honest reflection of the region bearing testament of Penfolds longstanding commitment to the vineyards of Coonawarra.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance Appearance
    Vibrant dark red.
  • Nose Nose
    Primarily blackcurrant, crème de cassis, black olive, aniseed, and a hint of violet. Oak well hidden, hesitantly arising sometime later sitting in glass. 
  • Palate
    Defined - structurally, an assertive firm line striding across a buffed core. Lively acidity and phenolics, sits confidently on the palate. Balanced and complete.

Sommelier Review

“Deep garnet-purple in color, the Bin 169 Cabernet Sauvignon presents an intensely minty nose with undertones of ripe cassis, eucalyptus, cedar and a touch of herbs. Ripe and expressive in the mouth it has bright acid and medium levels of very fine tannins, it finishes concentrated and long.”
