Bin 444 Cabernet Sauvignon

Wyndham Estate is one of the better establishments in the rich South Eastern Australia wine producing region. Bin 444 is one of a number of well-respected labels from this 180-year-old winery.

Bin 444 Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

This is a fruit-forward wine, rich in berry and stone fruit notes from initial nose to smooth, lingering finish.

It is a classic cab in that its taste lives up to the promise of its deep, rich color. A well-balanced touch of tartness keeps the fruit fresh and makes this an excellent selection to pair with rich meats and heavy pasta dishes. I'm glad I cellared it for seven years because it now is at its peak drinkability.

Retails for about $10.
