    March 28, 2019 - Blackcurrant fruit that manages to be both sweet and sour at the same time, some cedar and vanilla, very fresh on the finish, possibly even slightly too acidic, but overall a nice clean glass of 21 year old cab.

    December 16, 2018 - Classic Cab aromas of cassis and cedar. The palate has that Penfolds "correctness" about it - everything seems to be in order. Nothing wrong with that. Good fruit balanced against the oak, acid and integrated tannins. It's probably lacking some excitement though.

    August 2, 2018 - Nice nose, big and full bodied. Very smooth. Still has some years left.

    June 11, 2018 - Still dark inky ruby red with a touch of purple, from the color alone I wouldn't have guessed a 20y old wine. Nose of ripe cassis and plums with a touch of herbs and forest notes. Warm rich body with a medium long finish. Tannins are nicely resolved, though I would prefer a bit more acidity. Still, a very decent wine and nice to drink now.

    (Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon) Lovely cassis fruit on the nose, although it seems a touch tarry and chewy. Nicely rounded on the palate, with good tannins, sweet blackcurrant fruit and a mealy oak edge. The tannins also dominate the finish of this wine, which would also benefit from a few more years in bottle.
