PENFOLDS
 

SOUTH AUSTRALIA & NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA


 

Any serious wine lover knows that Penfolds is synonymous with both exceptional quality and unerring consistency. That's just one of the reasons that collectors the world over are given to scouring the secondary market for any and all product, from bottles of their Grange flagship (especially the 2016 vintage, which scored two perfect, 100-point scores in the wine press) to the Bin Series wines.

But one of the things that keeps so many of us in its thrall is that every Penfolds release is also ready to open right now, while also teasing with the immense promise of aging beautifully in the medium- and long-term.

That's why we were so thrilled when we recently secured the glorious bounty we have the great good fortune to bring you today.

In all, we have 7 wines to share from this legendary Australian house: a quartet from 2020 (Bin 28, Bin 389 Shiraz-Cabernet, Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon, and RWT Shiraz) and a trio from 2019, all produced from California grapes at their Napa winery (Bin 600 California Shiraz-Cabernet, Bin 704 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, and Bin 149 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon). ("Bin,” by the way, refers to where in the cellars the wines are stored while they age, with the higher numbers connoting wines of more recent vintage.)

Key to the success of the label, year after year, is that Penfolds is expert at blending across its various regional vineyard sites, both at home in Australia and beyond. And that in winemaker Peter Gago, they are fortunate not only to have a leader who has presided over the estate for more than three decades, with all the stability and continuity that reign has brought, but who also is blessed with a world-class eye and palate.

What was striking to us, in our recent tasting, is that, despite the various differences among these bottlings, there was a fascinating common denominator — namely, the enormous approachability and finesse of all 7.

If you are a Penfolds devotee, this will hardly come as any surprise. This is, after all, the estate’s signature — the uncanny ability to turn out wines of size, depth, and intensity that are nevertheless nimble enough to dance on the palate. They also possess the characteristic length and smoothness that makes them so irresistibly easy to drink.

We're able to extend our special Concierge Family pricing on these to you for the next week only -- so don't delay in securing these rich, plush reds from one of the world's greatest and most rewarding producers!
