Dusty capsicum and crushed leaf high notes; smelled riper and better as it sat; full-bodied again and soft, fleshy and sensuous; round and supple, smooth and luxurious texture. More cabbish than most: quite opulent and I like it very much.

Dense red-purple; luscious, concentrated ripe fruit and vanillin oak bouquet leads on to a palate with a cascade of plum, spice, vanilla and mint flavours, finishing with slightly disjointed tannins still coming together so early in its life. Could well end up in the highest rank. Drink to 2016.

"Bin 707 is Penfolds' Cabernet Sauvignon version of Grange: ripe,intensely-flavoured fruit; completing fermentation and maturation in new oak; fully expressing a Penfolds understanding of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.
Named by an ex-Qantas marketer, 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 or 2003 (when fruit of the required style and quality was not available). Fullbodied and with proven cellaring potential, Bin 707 has a secure place among the ranks of Australia's finest Cabernets."
