Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, perfectly reflects the Penfolds ‘House Style’ through a cabernet sauvignon lens: 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.

Full-bodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 retains a secure place among the ranks of Australia’s finest cabernets.

Colour
Squid ink blackness.

Nose
A brooding dark amalgam of black pudding, sweetbreads and marrow. Confirmed: no mention of (ferric) haemoglobin. Promise.
A brisk swirl of the glass reveals scents of nori, oyster/blackbean sauce and iodine.
A concession of varietal alignment – cabernet florals, blackcurrant and black mulberry.
Complexingly, a suggestion of beurre noisette sauce – avec sage.
Detection of a 100% new oak footprint? Maybe, if you really try … swamped by an overload of background ‘aromatic noise’?

Palate
Expansive. Even. Expressive. Engaging. Enigmatic.
Svelte tannins. Please explain – a compacted felt texture (dense/firm/softened/malleable).
Be warned – senses led astray – ambushed by tannins, seduced by generosity and power, waylaid by luxurious fruits and balance. Innocence lost.
Oak, as per nose, completely ingested. Flavours - where to start? Above descriptors on nose, convey to palate.
Organoleptically as one.
Implores secured time in bottle – for so many reasons. No. 1 – heightened hedonistic drinking enjoyment over time.
