2018 Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia

Tasting Notes

Bin 707, a bold American Oak aged Cabernet Sauvignon has become a hugely popular and sought after wine in the Penfolds collection.

Joe Czerwinski, RobertParker.com 97+ points
In case readers weren't aware, Bin 707 is always aged in new American oak, like Grange. The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 features plenty of vanilla on the nose, backed by concentrated cassis fruit. It's full-bodied, velvety and richly tannic, clearly meant to have two decades (or more) of longevity. Marked by ripe fruit, a notable lack of herbaceousness, and lavish oak, it's out of step with current trends in Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, but it's no less delicious and all the more unique for that."

Jancis Robinson, 17.5+/20
"Super-sweet cassis fruit, plus expressive vanilla scent and high but ultra-fine tannins. There's lovely black-olive and engine-oil savouriness on the finish. Thick, dense, formidable."

Vineyard Information

in 707 is a perfect cabernet sauvignon representation of Penfolds 'House Style': intensely-flavoured fruit; completion of fermentation and maturation in new oak; expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.

Bin 707 was first vintaged in 1964. The wine was not made from 1970 to 1975 (when fruit was directed to other wines) nor in 1981, 1995, 2000, 2003, 2011 or 2017 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia's finest cabernets.
