Penfolds Cabernet Shiraz Bin 8 2011

Penfolds Cabernet Shiraz Bin 8 750ml 2011     
Sku: 1835050

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Penfolds Bin wines were originally numbered to represent their initial post-bottling location; however recent additions have been numbered to suggest associations. Bin 8 for instance, is matured in oak previously used for other Bin wines containing the same number; Bin 389, Bin 128 and Bin 28. The figure eight is also a geometric shape of equal parts, perhaps symbolically mirroring the equity between cabernet sauvignon and shiraz. Notwithstanding the final blend of components, each variety contributes equally to this wine’s overall character. The cabernet sauvignon proffers a perfumed, elegant structure, which partners perfectly with the more generous, richly flavoured shiraz.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Feb 2013)
The 2011 Bin 8 Cabernet Shiraz is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Shiraz that spends 10 months aging in oak comprised of 10% new American barrels and 5% new French barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose gives aromas of fresh black currant and blackberry, some red currant with undertones of charcoal, dried herbs and pepper with touches of mint. Medium to full-bodied, crisp and taut, it has medium levels of chewy tannins, decent fruit concentration but is a little bitter in the long finish. Drink it now to 2018.
