Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
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 AcclaimAll Vintages
Penfolds has been producing remarkable wines since 1844 and indisputably led the development of Australian fine wine in the modern era. The introduction of Penfolds Grange in 1951 forever changed the landscape of Australian fine wine. Since then a series of stand-out wines both white and red have been released under the Penfolds masthead.
Peter Gago, Penfolds Chief Winemaker and only the 4th custodian of Grange, relishes the opportunity to bring Penfolds to the world stage and is an enthusiastic ambassador and natural educator. Penfolds came to the attention of the US market when 1990 Grange was Wine Spectator’s ‘Wine of the Year’. Since then, Penfolds Grange has become one of the most collectable wines of the world and was honored to grace the front cover, once again, of Wine Spectator, with declarations of Grange as Australia’s Icon.
