Other Reviews….
The 2018 Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Robe. Classically built, it begins with scents of mint, cigar box and cassis, later adding nuances of olive and chocolate. It's medium to full-bodied, with a smooth, silky yet unyielding feel on the palate, and it ends in a wash of dusty tannins. While approachable now, cellaring 2-3 years should result in greater harmony, and this admirably concentrated wine appears capable of aging well for more than a decade.

Joe Czerwinski – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate

From Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Robe, matured for 12 months in French (21% new) and American hogsheads (9% new). The warm vintage was mitigated in part by the major Limestone Coast components. Medium to full-bodied, with pronounced blackcurrant varietal fruit expression framed by sage and bay leaf, and appropriately firm cabernet tannins that add both texture and structure. Give it as much time as possible, however accessible it is now.
