    Winemaker's Notes:

    A deep and dark beetroot red color. On the nose, it is textbook violet upon sitting, with Coonawarra cassis signing off on varietal/regional DNA. Scents of beetroot juice, raspberry and lavender ascend effortlessly, but glaceed fruits and ground espresso coffee require some work in the glass. The palate is even and long, confident and firm. Massive fruits - blackcurrant, liqueur cherry - meshed with raspy tannins, red licorice.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bin 707 always stands out for its massive initial hit of American oak, but this wine has the fruit-driven power to stand up to its barrel regime. Perhaps because of the warm vintage, the wine is full-bodied bur rather open-knit on the palate, marrying cedar and vanilla with cassis. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

    Inky ruby. Deep aromas and flavors of cherry compote, dark berries, sassafras and tobacco, with an overlay of sexy oak spices. Quite backward but shows formidable density, depth and sweetness. Slow-building, supple tannins give a structural underpinning to the long, sappy, smoky finish. Still a baby and in need of at least five more years in the cellar.

    Matured in 100% new American oak, the 2008 Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon gives pronounced notes of creme de cassis, cedar and blackberry preserves over a fragrant undercurrent of crushed mint, eucalypt, violets and forest floor. Very concentrated, rich and structured in the mouth, it has a firm level of chewy tannins, crisp acid and a long oaky finish with some spiciness coming through. It really needs time for the oak to integrate and should drink best 2014 to 2024+.
