Aged in 50% new oak of which 30% is French, the very deep purple-black colored 2011 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon presents pure, pronounced cassis aromas wed to underlying Mediterranean herb, cedar, pencil lead and menthol notes. Medium-bodied and taut in the mouth, with just enough expressive fruit to meet the firm, grainy tannins and lively acid, it finishes with good length. 2,715 bottles were made. Drink it 2014 to 2021+.
