"This vintage of Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon was tasted as part of the Penfolds Rewards of Patience tastings in 2007. I don’t have the exact regional designations for these Bin 707s so for the moment take the regional credits here as stopgaps only. I didn’t fall in love with as many of the 1990 Penfolds reds as I expected at this tasting, but this Bin 707 rose gloriously above the pack. It’s still an essence-like wine. It’s rich, ripe, raisiny and chocolatey with enormous cassis-powered flavour. Tannins are fine-grained – something that couldn’t be said of earlier vintages of Bin 707. Indeed this wine has a gorgeous spread of fine tannin, and it’s this tannin that begins a more modern era for the wine. Lots of acidity. A pearler of a wine. Drink 2008-2024"
