Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Penfolds Bin 707 is widely regarded as 'benchmark' Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. A full-bodied wine with outstanding depth, complexity and structure, the palate offers great intensity and concentration of varietal flavor, balanced by a finely integrated oak character from 16 months maturation in new small American oak barrels. With careful cellaring, Penfolds Bin 707 will mature in bottle for many years.
During maturation, sediment may form in the bottle - an entirely natural feature of the wine's gratual development. For optimum enjoyment, the wine should therefore be carefully decanted, which will also allow it to breathe prior to being served.
"A towering Cabernet, tightly wrapping its supple, expressive core of currant and boysenberry with subtle hints of cream, espresso and dried herbs, flowing seamlessly into the long and vivid finish. Offers depth and power without apparent weight. A knockout. Best from 2015 through 2030."
"100% cabernet sauvignon from the Barossa Valley, Padthaway, Wrattonbully and Adelaide Hills. It finished its fermentation in, and was then matured for 16 months in, new American oak hogsheads. Exceptional depth of crimson-purple colour sets the scene for a spectacular wine from this great vintage. The American oak is very obvious, but that's the style. It's not one that instinctively appeals to me, and I always raise an eyebrow at the conjunction of cabernet and American oak. However, tastings over the years have shown that, when 10-20 years old, the components do come together very well."
Australian Wine Companion
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon is an earthier style displaying classic aromas of cassis, plum and pencil shavings with some earth, olives, spice box and cloves. Very structured by firm, grainy tannins, it is concentrated and muscular with good acid freshness through the long and layered finish. It... will drink to 2030+.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
