The flagship Cabernet Sauvignon is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 and it comes mostly from the Coonawarra and McLaren Vale regions. Brought up all in new American oak, this brilliant effort is another tour de force from this producer that has massive notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, vanilla bean, white chocolate, and hints of mint all soaring from the glass. Inky colored, full-bodied, and with a flamboyant, opulent mouthfeel, it opens up beautifully with time in the glass and didn’t show a hint of oxidation or tiredness during the three days I followed the bottle. Aussi Cabernet Sauvignon, or Cabernet Sauvignon for that matter, doesn’t get much better. Drink this magical effort anytime over the coming 2-3 decades.
Aged in American oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 707 stands out for its bold aromas of vanilla, tobacco and cassis. This year, it's close to 40% each from Coonawarra and McLaren Vale, with smaller proportions from Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills. It's full-bodied and rich, with a velvety mouthfeel, great intensity and super length. Yes, it's embryonic, but it's not unapproachable, much like any other high-quality New World Cabernet these days, with the ability to age for two decades or more.
