Penfolds – Bin 8 Cabernet Shiraz 2013 – South Australia

(60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Syrah) The nose is fruity, powerful, fresh and slightly elegance. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, cassis and fine notes of berries, graphite associated with a hint of fresh strawberry, cherry and spice. The palate is fruity, unctuous, well-balanced, relatively powerful, nicely fleshy, relatively gourmande and offers a nice freshness, a small frame acid, fat and tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry cream, cassis and fine notes of strawberry, plum associated with a very discreet hint of redcurrant as well as slight notes of chocolate, toasted oak and vanilla / caramel. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
