Penfolds 707 (0.75 L)
The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 exhibits a broodingly dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of black currants, tapenade, cola, and spicy oak (this cuvee spends 14 months in 100% new American barrels). Pure and dense yet fresh and elegant, it appears to be one of the finest Bin 707s produced in nearly a decade. It is much more natural tasting than previous vintages, which seemed too extracted and acidified. The 2002 should drink well young, yet age for 15+ years.
