COLOUR: Deep mulberry red
NOS: An automatic ascent of cabernet sauvignon varietal fruits laced with classic Bin 707 barrel-ferment and formic markers. Scents of boysenberry ice-cream, black forest cake, dark black cherry/kirsch…and zabaglione, panna cotta notes hovering above. Contribution noted via the release of sandalwood, frankincese and whetstone sharpening block graphite aromatics. Vivid. Elemental. Beckoning.
PALATE: A solid cabernet core immediately apparent, with fruits to the fore (juicy blackcurrant) and a wrinkled, black olve concentration. COmplexingly, a dark choclate graniness, cedar and a savoury disposition contribute to the layering, length and longevity potential of this wine.

POINTS
In case readers weren't aware, Bin 707 is always aged in new American oak, like Grange. The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 features plenty of vanilla on the nose, backed by concentrated cassis fruit. It's full-bodied, velvety and richly tannic, clearly meant to have two decades (or more) of longevity. Marked by ripe fruit, a notable lack of herbaceousness, and lavish oak, it's out of step with current trends in Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, but it's no less delicious and all the more unique for that.
