Shows appealing density and a savory thread, featuring rosemary, sage and loam details that mingle with firm currant and dried cherry flavors.

Another beautiful effort in the lineup this year is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407, which is a multi-region cuvée brought up in both French and American oak hogsheads. Classic notes of blackcurrants and cassis interwoven with hints of dill, tobacco, and graphite all flow to a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that's fabulously balanced, with good acidity as well as ripe tannins. Give bottles another year or two and it should cruise for a decade or more.
