Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon (Label Damage)

Cracka Review

Impenetrable black/purple with a concession of red at the rim. an unashamedly powerful, sweet nose of ripe fruits, (blackcurrant, concentrated cassis) and unbaked Christmas cake mix, align with an aromatic coal/smoky barrel ferment lift. Complex and distinctive! Dark stone fruits, mocha and dark chocolate flavours stand apart with a black olive, tarry darkness lurking behind - 14 months in 100% new oak handled comfortably. Succulent and fleshy without any suggestion of over ripeness, facilitated by huge, ripe, mouth coating tannins that coat evenly without excessive grip. long and lingering.

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
A welcome return to form for this important wine. It slowly unfolds a very closed and deeply layered bouquet of intense small black and red berries, plums and slightly meaty, deep mocha/dark chocolate and cedary oak. its deeply ripened and sumptuously concentrated palate of dark plums and berries, chocolates and cassis is firmly structured around a supremely fine-grained cut of bony, kernelly tannins. Finer and more elegant than either 1996 or 1998 vintages, without a hint of over-ripeness, it's deep and brooding, with an exceptional cellaring potential.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Powerful blackberry, earth fruit punctuates both bouquet and palate; intense, no-compromise tannins; has chewed up the oak; long finish. High-quality cork showing overflow stain.
