97 points, “Sourced from McLaren Vale (41%), Coonawarra, Barossa Valley and Padthaway this vintage, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 spent 18 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads prior to bottling. Scents of vanilla, cedar and celery seed seamlessly swirl around dark notions of cassis, plum, coffee and cocoa. There's a touch of mint, but it fits well within the context of the wine. Full-bodied, concentrated and rich, this wine looks to have at least two decades ahead of it. The finish is truly special, with beguiling hints of maple syrup balanced by a smooth, enveloping wash of softly dusty tannins.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

96 points, “The bastion of Penfolds’ ‘house style’ with assertive, cedary American oak across intense cabernet sauvignon, sitting in the blackcurrant, blackberry and mulberry zone. Follows suit on the palate with the same black-fruit core, swathed in new-oak, sweet spices. Long, sweetly ripe tannins. A blend of McLaren vale, Coonawarra, Barossa Valley and Padthaway grapes, matured in 100% new American-oak hogsheads. Drink over the next decade.” – James Suckling

96 points, “Showing strong varietal aromas and rich texture, this is more restrained and carefully measured than the lively Bin 407 from the same vintage. This model is all about the slow, even flow of luscious blackberry and plum flavours wrapped in red earth and chocolate, before tannins gently envelop the back-palate to ensure a graceful, gentle landing. A very complete package for such a young Cabernet.” – Decanter

If you're looking for a bottle for the cellar or a gift for a tenth anniversary, then Penfolds’ Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine for you. The flagship Cabernet Sauvignon in the range, this is a phenomenal wine, as the critic scores suggest. The epitome of the Penfolds house style, it’s created using exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa and Padthaway, and in some vintages even a splash from the legendary old-vine Block 42. A tightly wound coil of crème de cassis, blackberry, pencil lead, fountain pen ink, vanilla-infused white chocolate, roast lamb, mint sauce, sage, black pepper and tobacco, this will slowly unfurl and expand over decades. Pure opulence with many years ahead of it, this bottle is an investment in the future.

Penfolds is certainly Australia’s, and possibly one of the world’s, most iconic wine producers. Established in 1844, it boasts an enviable history that most wineries in the Old World would give their right arm for. Most famous for its flagship wine, Penfolds Grange, which is the very definition of Australian fine wine and the 1955 vintage was even described by Wine Spectator as one of the “Wines of the Century”. Penfolds owe much of their success to Max Schubert, their winemaker who travelled to Europe after World War II and came back with all kinds of secrets. His innovative, often multi-regional, blends have become part of the DNA of Penfolds, and now the wines are the choice of connoisseurs and collectors all over the world.
