2018 Penfolds 'Bin 600' California Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz
93 Points, James Suckling:
"A very fine and polished red with cherry, berry, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavors. Some spice and meat with hints of tea leaf. Some ash, too. Medium body and extremely refined texture, showing real balance and elegance. The tannins spread across the palate in a beautiful way. 78% cabernet sauvignon and 22% shiraz. Drink or hold."
93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a blend of 78% Napa Valley- and Sonoma-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Shiraz from Paso Robles. It is a smooth and earthy wine that offers flavors of leather, earth, iron and crushed rock cut against herbal accents." - Virginie Boone (4/1/2021)
Named for our original California vineyard, the Creston 600 Ranch, Penfolds Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz is intrinsically linked to the American Dream we embarked on more than 20 years ago. Today, Bin 600 is made with grapes grown from the original heritage selection of vine cuttings we first planted back in 1998 a taste of the esteemed Kalimna and Magill Estate vineyards, brought to America in a signature Penfolds blend.
