Big ol' Aussie Cab. Concentrated red fruit and spiced vanilla. Hints of smoke and pepper. Structured but not overly tannic. Nice bottle of wine.

Solid Australian cab. Lots of ripe red fruit on the nose, with cherry and mint on the palate. A generous fresh finish. Went well with BBQ sirloin tip roast and even better with chocolate cake.

Very nice cab, still young, but beautiful and smooth. I really like Penfolds.

Nice well rounded cab good value for the price. Red fruit cherry and a nice mineral finish. With tortellini good combination overall.

For a $15 wine this can't get better. Penfold has done an amazing job with their Bins, particularly on the lower price range. For an old world style grape this tastes suspiciously like a new world Napa cab, which I'm perfectly fine with. Good full body (this is 2013, perhaps gets better over time) for its age and smooth tannis. Just what you would expect from a nice cab. Too bad most places are sold out.
