This is part of the new lineup of Penfold's wines that are from other than Australia. This one is from Napa. I believe it is supposed to be a Napa version of their Bin 407 from Australia. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with cassis and an interesting scent that I have notice rarely in other wines that can best be described as the fat off a fresh corned beef sandwich at a Jewish delicatessen. There is also a bit of baking spices. Medium to full bodied. Light tannins. On the palate, this is ripe fruit with a lot of cassis. Some underlying char/smoke. Nice finish
