Tasting Note:

"Made only in appropriate vintages, and always from Coonwarra, the 2019 Bin 169 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is aromatically reticent at this stage, however the power of the fruit in the mouth in unassailable. It blossoms on the back palate and shows pedigree and impressive stature. This is a supremely elegant wine of poise and detail, couched in a framework of power and dense muscly tannin. We all have our preferences between Bin 707 and Bin 169, but for me, my heart has always been with the 169. I think Cabernet deserves an elegant casing, and that is made from French oak (17 months in French oak, 56% new, to be precise). This is pure, but far too young right now. We know this has decades of graceful development ahead of it. - Erin Larkin BIN 169 offre un bouquet légèrement mentholé, délicatement eucalyptus avec des arômes de fruits noirs, d'épices et de cassis. Petite pointe graphite et réglisse à l'aération. Très belle tension de bouche, de l'allonge, du jus, de la fermeté également même si l'ensemble est plutôt sur l'allonge. Une belle bouteille en devenir. 100 % cabernet-sauvignon". - 97/100 - Yohan Castaing, Wine Advocate

"The 2019 Bin 169 is a beautifully pristine and pure Coonawarra Cabernet that was matured for 17 months in 56% new French Oak hogsheads. It offers up a classic regional expression. Aromas with pinpoint focus display a breath-taking start with leafy cassis, blackberry and cedar aromas nicely interwoven with high quality oak, extraordinary underlying energy and vitality. A delightful seamlessness between mouthcoating tannins and impressive violet and cranberry flavours follow with impeccable balance also on display. With incredible length, this Coonawarra classic will deliver for many years to come". - 96/100 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
