Much more generous and appealing than Bin 407 at first acquaintance; luscious blackcurrant fruit, and seamless oak and tannins; great mouthfeel.
The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon “Bin 707” is one of the Penfolds’ flagship wines. It was aged for 15 months in 100% new American oak. Opaque purple/black, it exhibits a classic Cabernet nose of cedar, tobacco, spice box, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. Medium-bodied (13.5% alcohol) but dense and concentrated, with tons of black fruit flavor, the wine is tightly knit, structured, beautifully balanced, and very promising. It needs a minimum of 10-12 years of cellaring and should provide pleasure through 2040.
One of the best vintages of 707 yet produced, this is an extravagant, tobacco-scented cabernet. The texture is luscious, saturated with red and black currant flavors, embroidered with mineral tannins that last. A pleasure to drink now, this should be at its best ten years from the vintage. Blended from vineyards in Coonawarra, McLaren Vale and Barossa, this includes a component from Penfolds' ancient cabernet vines at Kalimna.
Behind some mint, eucalyptus and cedar aromas, this is a big, meaty Cabernet, with lots of flesh and power. The tight cassis fruit needs some time to unfold and the mouthdrying tannins need some time to resolve, but all the ingredients for future excellence are in place. Drink 2012–2020. A blend of Coonawarra and Barossa fruit, with just a smidgen from McLaren Vale.
Polished and ripe, with sweet spices from toasty oak weaving through the detailed currant, blackberry and cream flavors, lingering effortlessly on the beautifully formed, persistent finish. Not a big wine, but this has tremendous class.
Very intense blackcurrant and cassis leaf edge. Very intense pure cassis, sweet ripe tannins but still has a touch of the freshness of cassis leaf. Very very thick pile with just a touch of grip on the very end. After time in the glass: spicy, lavender chocolate (I had some lavender-flavoured chocolate recently!), wonderfully fresh even though it is so ripe and pure, melted chocolate tannins.
