Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Bin 707 is Penfolds' Cabernet Sauvignon version of Grange: ripe, intensely-flavored fruit; completing fermentation and maturation in new oak; fully expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.

Color: Dense, deep-red, with a dark purple / black core.

Nose: Brooding, with a selective & slow aromatic release - firstly wafts of black olive (tapenade), then the faintest suggestion of sardine / anchovy - or maybe soy / Worcestershire - or could it be... ? More confidently, familial barrel-ferment, cedary oak and formic notes share the stage with blackcurrant & blackberry fruits. Inviting, tempting.

Palate: Cassis / blackcurrant varietal fruits and savory oak stake an immediate (style) claim. Sarsaparilla and choco-mint flavors mold together to create the next layer, followed by a more savory (Chinese mushroom / oyster sauce mix) immersion structurally impregnating any layering. Gripping tannins complete the offer.

Drink: 2012 to 2025

Critical Acclaim

"Saturated ruby. Powerful, pungent aromas of red- and blackcurrant, candied cherry, dried flowers, mint and pipe tobacco, with a smoky overtone of vanillin oak. Broad but focused, offering deep dark berry flavors and notes of bitter cherry, floral pastilles and smoky herbs. Gains sweetness with air and becomes more tannic but there are no hard edges here. The herb and vanilla notes echo through a very long, sweet finish. I'd hold off on drinking this deep wine for at least another ten years. This was raised in 100% new American oak hogsheads."
93 Points

"Bin 707 is always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and always 100% new oak, though it is not released every year. The 2007 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon was matured 15 months in new American oak hogsheads. Very deep purple-black in color, it gives intense notes of vanilla, creme de cassis, blackberry preserves, licorice and espresso plus a bit of dark chocolate. Very crisp with a very high level of chewy tannins, the fruit is just a little ungenerous on the medium to full-bodied palate, giving a long tannin-dominated finish. With another 2 years+ in bottle, the fruit may come forward on this wine and it should drink to 2020+.
92+ points."
92 Points

"Strong red-purple; has clear blackcurrant fruit, some notes of chocolate (a McLaren Vale component?) and strong tannins - are those tannins the reason for the very ordinary cork? Needs time."
92 Points

"Ripe and expressive, with currant and plum fruit playing against mineral and herb flavors. Tannins firmly clamp down on the finish, requiring cellar time to soften. This should eventually become elegant. Best after 2013."
91 Points

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
