1996 Penfolds "Bin 707" Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia

SKU #200150 97 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Full red-purple; concentrated, ripe, cassis and blackberry fruit leaps from the glass, with oak present but trailing behind. The palate is as rich, ripe, succulent and concentrated as the bouquet suggests, redolent with cassis, and long, lingering tannins. Inner quote mark (7/2011)

91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deeply colored, this 707 Cabernet offers notes of ripe blackcurrant, warm black cherries and mulberries with a fragrant undercurrent of sandalwood. The palate is voluptuously fruited with firm, grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long spicy finish. It makes for a great drop of Cabernet now but still has plenty to give. (LPB) Inner quote mark (1/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Lots there! Satin texture and lots of Cab fruit plus coconut oak. A bit obvious. But for the age it is still very lively. (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2004)

Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Cassis, black raspberry, espresso, dark chocolate and toffee on the oaky nose. Juicy, firm dark berry flavors; concentrated and supple, with ripe supporting acids. Nicely balanced if rather oaky. Finishes with dusty, ripe tannins. Inner quote mark (7/1999)
