93 points Wine Enthusiast

 The rich blackberry, vanilla and toast nose sets you up for a lush, supple wine and this one does not disappoint. Full and dense, it offers rich black-cherry and cassis flavors on the palate, and a huge finish with fine-grained tannins. Very well poised for its size, it’s approachable now. Nevertheless, it will be much more nuanced and show more finesse in 5-8 years. Keep for a decade or two, maybe more.  (3/2001)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Firm in texture, with an open feel--a transparency--to the red berry, cherry and herb flavors. Has an aristocratic structure, with ripe tannins and a floral quality to the finish. (HS, Web-2008)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Saturated bright, deep ruby. Captivating aromas of blackcurrant, lead pencil, tar, vanilla, mint and bourbon; the oak contributes an incense quality without overpowering the wine other aromatic components. Supple, juicy and intensely flavored, with bright, ripe acids framing the fruit and giving the wine lovely inner-mouth perfume. Lively and consistent from start to finish. Finishes very long, with ripe tannins and a note of bitter chocolate. A particularly strong vintage for this wine. (ST)  (8/2001)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The outstanding 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 is a thick, rich, full-bodied Cabernet emphasizing copious quantities of cassis fruit. Pure, with nicely integrated oak, acidity, and tannin, it cuts a broad swath across the palate. While still young and grapy, this 1998 is loaded with potential. (RP)  (6/2001)
