Penfolds Bin 707 continues to reinforce its reputation as the international benchmark for Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. The winemaking philosophy of Bin 707 is similar to that of Grange. The foundations are carefully selected ripe grapes, barrel fermentation and new American oak maturation. Bin 707 is a well structured, full bodied wine that has great intensity and concentration, which requires cellaring to realise its full potential.
"Dark purple-red; a wine which continues that high-toned, lusciously aromatic fruit of the '96, with some cedary oak. There is plenty of weight and stuffing to the palate, where cassis and vanilla intermingle, rounded off with lingering tannins."
Australian Wine Companion
"Generous in flavor, supple in texture, delivering a ripe mouthful of mint-shaded black cherry and currant flavors that linger on the open finish, echoing mint and fruit. Tannins are beautifully integrated. Best from 2005 through 2012."
"Ruby-red. Vinous, captivating aromas of blackberry, wild plum, currant, roast coffee and mocha, with subtle rather than overwhelming evidence of American oak. Concentrated, harmonious and quite suave; at once velvety and nicely delineated thanks to ripe, well-integrated acidity. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and excellent length."
