Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 has gorgeous crème de cassis, cedar, dark chocolate, spice cake and menthol notes, with a yeasty/meaty undercurrent and a waft of espresso. Medium-bodied, firm and fine in the mouth, it is intense yet elegant with great length and expression. This is another Penfolds offering that is so taut and primary at this stage, it would be a shame to open it without 2-3 more years in bottle.

Matured for 17 months in new American oak barriques of such quality that it doesn't go to war with the fruit - or is it simply that the fruit has sucked it up? It really doesn't matter any more that some will politely move to one side and let others buy (and even drink) this wine, revelling in the mega amounts of fruit, oak and tannins. Drink to 2040.

No longer in the shadow of Grange, 707 is a true Australian First Growth. Peter Gago reveals 707 as his fastest selling wine in
every market, though a doubling in price in four years slowed it down somewhat. This is another exceptional Bin 707 that carries
an 81% Barossa core (the remainder Padthaway and Port Lincoln) with sheer confidence and great concentration, without for a
moment letting its gaze drop from impeccable varietal definition and poise. It’s a full, vibrant purple hue, laced with black- and
redcurrants, capsicum and cedar, enveloping a core of dark chocolate and coffee, absorbing 17 months in 100% new American oak
hogsheads into its folds. At once fragrant and airy and at the same time dense and powerful, it’s at every moment intricately poised
and impeccably controlled. In line and length, an epic Bin 707. Drink 2024 - 2044.
