Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. 

“Exotic. Aromatically more perfumed than normal – old-garden fresh dark red rose, lavender, and ylang-ylang. It transitions upon sitting, to conform to a more recognisable Bin 707 varietal demeanour. But not quickly … work required in glass to awaken! Palate: Uniform across palate. Balanced, expressive. Many flavours register – the ‘pure’ (blueberry fruits), and the ‘derived’ (rum ‘n’ raisin chocolate / freshly-baked panettone / trifle without custard). Tannins – focussed, fine-grained, not angular or blocky. Oak – collaborative and courteous!”
